Multeous God (yes I made up that Word)
God, I love to consider the stars That I am inconsequential Ok not really, but there is something comforting that I am small in a great huge universe That there are many humans and we collectively matter more than my small mistakes.
Jesus Christ, I love the weather That I cannot accurately tell you if it will rain or hurricane 4 hour from now Much less what it will be like tomorrow It keeps me humble in all the right ways.
Holy Spirit, I do not always love my body it needs food and water all the time and sleep, and exercise; its so needy, and I’m not very good at listening to it. I don’t know why I don’t appreciate it like I do the stars and the weather.
I guess because it’s mine and I’m supposed to be in charge it. But you and I know that it is really yours God, and that it is still imperfect and as unpredictable as the weather and as colossal as a universe.
God I wonder at all the systems of the world That you have made them just so. And maybe be ok with the fact that You were not so into perfection huh? You were more into variety and beauty and multiplicity.
How beautiful is the fact that you are a multeous God (Yes I made that word up for you God)
I love you, Thank You

"Publisher after publisher turned down A Wrinkle in Time," L'Engle wrote, "because it deals overtly with the problem of evil, and it was too difficult for children, and was it a children's or an adult's book, anyhow?" The next year it won the prestigious John Newbery Medal.
Tolkien states in the foreword to The Lord of the Rings that he disliked allegories and that the story was not one. Instead he preferred what he termed "applicability", the freedom of the reader to interpret the work in the light of his or her own life and times.
