Sweet innocence

Here I am,
at the door.
I welcome in sweet innocence.
I am immersed in the joy of Your purity.
Divine Love uplifts the thought of innocence.

Here I am,
letting go of my plan,
              my self-will,
              my . . . everything “my.”
Rigid conformity, prejudices fade.
Clarity and receptiveness are real
in the perfect glow of unselfed love.

Here I am.
Help me, O Lord, to claim my
              sweet innocence,
to be Your expression of grace,
              which evermore is.
