All this time, I loved a book, and having all the answers, more than I loved God.

So God took away the Book, took away the answers, took away institutions who said they had all the answers,

And gave me only Herself, with all Her mystery and uncertainty
beauty and nourishment.

And in clinging to that divine breast, She gave me back everything else I ever loved.

  1. I love the breast imagery. It communicates the nurture and nourishment of a God who is mother, but it also reclaims what has been called dangerous and seductive as an expression of the divine.
