But then . . .

Now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: 
now I know in part; but then 
shall I know even as also I am known.
I Corinthians 13:12 (emphasis added)

My first waking thought arrives
. . . gently stirring
in the stillness.
I’m feeling immeasurably small,
listening in peace,
waiting to hear even a tiny idea.

I’m adoring God,
and as my smile dawns, 
these words come:
“God is my life.” 
Grateful tears appear; 
I am not alone.

I am beyond the glass. 
I am known. 
I am loved.
God is my life. 

The words are mine!
Face to face, in His likeness,

. . . I awake.
