When We Talk About God…

Sometimes I’m not sure who or what we’re referring to

when we talk about God.

Is He a machine in charge of upholding institutions

and assumptions

or amorphous love cloud?

I like to think of God in terms of the Simple Gospel:

“I wanna know you more,

like I know a friend.”

Does that encapsulate all God is?

By no means, but it’s a good place to start.

An Education

“I wanna write a romance novel,” she says,

“where things are messy, things are perfect,

where romance isn’t smooth,

and the lovers don’t quite know what they’re doing.

Otherwise, you go into love thinking everyone’s got it all together,

and that’s not the case at all.

We’re imperfect beings, our fiction should be an education in that

So that reality goes a little smoother.”
