we are cared for

God loved us before we even knew it.

This is how my kids would say it. Heck, this is how I sometimes say it! It is the contemporary street version. Before the foundations of the world were laid… Love is eternal and infinite.

One of the things I notice in people is a deep need to feel loved, that their life has meaning, that somehow they are cared for. Even though we are often blind to it, I believe it is true: we are cared for.

My books.     My art.

    We don’t say “fuck” in our house, but some dear friends of mine use it for adjective, noun, verb, adverb, exclamation, punctuation… So versatile.
