“Father God, help us to attach only to You, Up Above, for You are Perfect! Down here, everything is attachment and when the attachment no longer pleases or works, we get aggravated and blame You. Help us in our ‘detached dis-ease’ so we can attach ourselves to Your Grace that comes from detaching from any and all expectations. Everything but Jesus Christ, Your Son and our Savior, need be our only attachment. On a more personal note, I don’t know what that saddest note attached to that precious dog in the picture said, but what makes me saddest is anyone who would abandon one of Your nonhuman animals. When you gave us dominion but NOT domination (Genesis 1:26) over Your nonhuman animals, Father God, you were asking us to protect and preserve their lives, not abandon them. When we abandon BOTH Your humans AND nonhuman animals, we are attaching ourselves to selfishness, irresponsibility, and cruelty. Let us detach from these things, Father God, for they are not from You. I pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and Attached Name of Jesus Christ, and this prayer is answered by my faith and my belief. Please help me, Father God, where my faith and my belief are lacking. Amen.”

(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in attaching only to God’s Up-Above Grace and detaching from all things down here this daily leavened [Jesus Attaches!] bread.”)

You’ve attached yourself to what does not please.

When what stops pleasing, you are great displease.

What always pleases is “detached dis-ease.”

“Ease” yourself to detached from guarantees.

For me, attachment is expectation.

I expect what I’m attached to will work.

When what detaches, I’m aggravation.

It’s ’cause what I expected is my murk.

“Be attached to nothing but My Father,”

says Jesus. “God is all you can expect.

Detach from everything down here: Bother!

Attach yourself Up Above: God’s Perfect!”

Nothing but God’s Grace is our detachment.

Everything but Christ is our attachment.

  1. I am unfortunately attached to worldly things, emotions, people. I strive to be detached from murky circumstances and striving. Detachment sounds cold but it is truly lifesaving.


  2. Yes, Dag. Of course, it is not easy to detach from worldly things because they are ALL AROUND US! It’s challenging, no doubt, but you can do it! I pray I can do it, too! 😉
