God’s Lap

‘Lay down’ he told me,  ‘rest & recover’.

It was better than the most comfortable bed I’ve ever been in.  I felt so safe, secure, and warm.  Nothing hurt every contact of my skin to his felt nourished.  I was healing.

‘Sleep my precious child’ he said and I did.

His thumb rested over me like a security blanket, keeping my body temperature perfect.

I awoke & my thoughts began to race…

‘No my child stop, this was just an accident.  You are okay.  Your body knows how to heal, calm your mind, sleep.’

And I did, better than ever before.
