Dear Jude: wise things

Dear Jude, sometimes I will share with you my wise things that will become your wise things only when you sit trying to figure out how to tell your own first child that there are lessons that burn, lessons that heal; lessons that must be discovered personally and still others best learned from secondhand safety; that life can be as hard as it can be forgiving. That love is a universal thing that you will have achieved true understanding of only when you realize that ‘my’ love, ‘your’ love or ‘his/her/their’ love is only a vague imitation of God, by whom all true cravings are inspired. That our paths are as long as our perseverance, our destiny as fixed as our determination; that there is prayer even in silences and that every prayer is heard.

You are the answer to every impossible promise God has made me.
