* I love you, Terry. My love is not performance based. It never has been nor will be.
* I grieve when you struggle. I long for you to draw near to me, to permit Me to comfort you like a mother her hurting child.
* My patience is infinite. I also know end from beginning. I complete what I begin in my sons and daughters. I don't employ the methods of man, ie., emotional manipulation, control, blackmail. My methods are love, peace, quiet wooing (not the "silent treatment"), allowing room for response from your heart, not robotic behavior which I of My own will generate. I allow free will -- it is a mystery. But in that space, I wait, ever hopeful, smiling -- secure in Our relationship. I don't vacillate with your inconsistency. You do not have to play games, Terry, trying so hard to make up for failure in your strength, for it leads you to feel I'm impossible to please, a tough taskmaster. This is so far from the truth. I'm PERFECT PAPA, remember!!
Enjoying Truth in the Shadow,
