Who knocked upon whose door? You stand at my threshold, Lord, and I upon yours.

Shield my eyes from the gloom of yesterday, and from the glare of tomorrow. You glow here, now, and my limbs warm. Embrace me from the cold.

Today I will walk the same track as yesterday, with the same chores. All the joy of a simple life, renewed each day.

Let me make ready for this journey, as you make ready the day for me. You knocked, I answered. I knock, you answer.

Let me draw yet more near to you.

(Letter #2,763)
