Dear God

I cannot love Thee the way I want to.

You are the slim crescent of the moon that I see and my self is the earth’s shadow

that keeps me from seeing  all the moon.

The crescent is very beautiful and perhaps that is all one like I am should or could see; but what I am afraid of, dear God, is that my self shadow will grow so large that it blocks the  whole moon, and that I will judge myself by the shadow that is nothing. I do not know you God because I am in the way.

Please help me to push myself aside.

Flannery O’Connor
