Gleanings of Imperfection

Oh Christ, my Beloved,

As I walk through the fields of my day, I choose by Your grace to drop a few sheaves of imperfection in everything I do -- as little sacrifices for you to glean1. Please receive them as tiny crosses2 -- tokens of praise. Each one a small death to my obsession to be perfect and my lust for closure. May these grain offerings become a "soothing aroma"3 to You.

I acknowledge that only You are Perfect and I leave to You the delight of being The Perfect One --

The Only Perfect One

With all the love in my heart,
Your Child
