My Book of Uncommon Prayers: Betrayed

045 - Copy

When I feel betrayed, and I am primed to let accusations fly, I take a breath–

at least this time I will–

and realize I have truly been betrayed,

but not by You, my Provider, but

by my expectations and dreams–even the American dream.

What have I done with my resources?

How much time has been spent in accumulating, building, and outfitting a nest

for my 3 score and 10?  I feel betrayed,

but not by You, my Lover,

but by all the things that I have loved.
