Today was one of those days when I felt like the chasm between me and God got small. I took my tuna sandwich and parked my car at the boathouse down the road and watched the gulls and the sparrows and the wind in the phragmites. I read my bible and drank a diet coke. And listened to the Christmas half of the Messiah and found myself on the verge of tears.
Later, I had an hour of solitude, so I took my bible and went to bed. I just got through Daniel as I drifted off to sleep. In my dreams, I had a conversation with God. I came to with these words in my head:
" I have such a longing for that girl that I was before. I long for her to know you. "
