Coffee for Your Heart- Pajama Love

 

By Susie Teramura

 

Evening falls quiet,

Into night,

Pulling on

Flannel pink and red

Drawstring Pj ‘s,

Fluffy yellow socks,

Make my feet like

Baby chicks curling

Up for the night,

Old long sleeve t-shirt

With letters fading off,

Slides on comfy.

 

Make up washes down the sink

Undo the rubber band,

Red hair falls into

A curly mess.

 

Looking in the mirror,

I see me,

Tired and real,

It’s funny because

Tonight,

I found you there.

 

Loving me, plain

Just being me,

Just because,

No reason but

You are Love.

 

It’s Your other name,

Your nickname

The name

You are known by.

 

And so I stand there,

All a mess,

And feel you

Comforting me,

Warming up my

Insides,

Filling me up

Like cocoa,

In my heart,

With marshmallows

On top.

 

It’s the real me

You love,

The real me

You see.

 

Crawling under the covers,

I sigh big,

Breathe,

Shoulders let go,

Relief

You God,

Named Love,

Found me.

 

1 John 4:8b

“God is love.”

 

Deuteronomy 7:9

 “Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments”.

  1. Susie,
    God fills us up like cocoa with marshmallows on top — love that visual! Yes, even when he sees us in our pajamas and without makeup, he still loves to be with us! {If only that were true with everyone we meet, right?!} Lovely words, as always — and warm ones for a winter day!

  2. This makes me want to go put on my pajamas and settle in with a cup of hot cocoa but I’ve got to get dressed for church. Think they’d mind if I showed up in my flannels? Ha! Kidding.
