Have I told you lately that you smooth rough patches and make soft grooves of grace in my very soul?
Have I whispered lately that your words are balm and healing ointment on my aching head?
Have I breathed gratitude and thankfulness over all the spoken, written, holy words that come from You and yours?
When I read the words of Yours and all the Saints who drip and drop the words of gentleness on an stirring soul, I have to stop and say,
Have I told you lately that you bless me?
Do you know the power of words so tender on the tough dry patches, where the world can wear a callous on the spirit of a child?
Where all the tears and rips need healing from your very lips, the words, a salve on grooves left by salty tears?
Have I told you lately how your grace poured out, blesses in the crevices, running deep and staying there, a soothing sought after lather on the wound.
I will tell you often that you bless me.
And bury my soul in the words from your Holy mouth and listen gently with a tender heart to the words from all your Saints.
Can you hear me tell you that you bless me?
