Mornings with Mary: Questioning

anguish festers internally
about answers to some of the questions


in the book (Wrapped Up: God's Ten Gifts for Women)
we’re currently using in Bible Study,
making me hesitate to address them,
let alone share the answers with others.


Although it’s understood,  
(much like in programs as AA) 
what is spoken in our meetings 
goes no where outside the room 
in which we meet.
I know why and from whence
these reservations stem.
years ago I experienced
a betrayal by a friend,
who happened to be 
the mother of a student.
in addition,
in my childhood was
an unspoken but implied rule,
that prevented me 
from sharing about my family
and its inward secrets.
but if I choose not to ponder my failures,
how else will I ever move 
beyond this inability 

to feel loved and forgiven?

I now ask the Mother of our Lord

who encompasses all that is holy

to intercede for me

and bless me

with the knowledge of acceptance

that indeed I am loved,


therefore I am forgiven.

Quotography: Alfred, Lord Tennyson

"If I had a flower for every time I thought of you...
I could walk through my garden forever."
