The day after uploading my last posting, this was emailed to me. It seemed fitting to post it.
There is, deep within, one voice, at once very strong and very gentle, that can calm the storm. It says something extremely simple like, ‘It’s okay. I love you anyway.’ It seems to come from beneath all the other voices, and though it is a quiet voice, it speaks with compelling authority. This is the Voice of Mercy.
~Elaine Prevallet, from Weavings May/June 1980
Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. ~John 15:13
May this Voice of Mercy be the only voice you and I listen to, so we might know we are indeed loved “anyway.”
