“Father God, thank You that you ask us to love them no holds barred. We are to love them expecting nothing regard which, by the way, is not easy at all. Our ego tells us we must love them and expect them to love us back. Our Spirit tells us we must love them no holds barred and no expectations are, well, to be expected. Once again, this is SO hard, Father God. It’s only through Your Love that we can love them this Spirit Way, which is The Way of Your Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ. When Jesus had to take the witness stand as an Innocent Man, He would not speak. Let us not speak either, Father God, down here until it is time to speak Up There. And let us speak Up There that, yes, we had You, we knew You, and we were most definitely enthralled! Help us not have disgust! On a more personal note, major prayers for the two fish creating the eyes for the cat in the picture that looks just like my little man, Conrad. I personally don’t think the two fish stand a chance of making it out of this picture alive, but just maybe the cat will love the two fish and expect nothing as food regarding them. I know Conrad, though, and he would have no regard for the two fish and most definitely expect food. Lol! Help me, Father God, to always love ‘eternity express’ BOTH Your humans AND nonhuman animals no holds barred. In You, I always have more ‘God Trust.’ I pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and Verdict/Gavel 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 loving them no holds barred this daily leavened [Jesus Regards!] bread.”)

What is assured is that you will have trials.

You’ll be on the witness stand to confess.

Jury and Judge Jesus and stacks of files

will decide your “eternity express.”

What is a given is I will be called

to admit why I wasn’t more “God Trust.”

“You had God. You knew God. Why not enthralled?”

Like Jesus, I won’t speak. Like me, disgust!

“When I call you forth, I will inquire this,”

asks Jesus. “Did you love them no holds barred

or did you love them expecting your bliss?

Love them NOW expecting nothing regard.”

Before The Verdict, let us be on guard.

Before The Gavel, let’s love no holds barred.

    1. Very difficult, Dag. And our ego would like nothing better than to make it hard for us. I’m definitely not there yet (will I ever be?) when it comes to loving others and not expecting them to love me in return. I’m still struggling with just letting people love me [period] and love me the only way they can….BOTH! I don’t think I have to give you the name of the particular person I have the most trouble with this BOTH, right? 😥


  1. No names need to be mentioned, Timothy. I think I expect others to love me in the way i wanna be loved, I take that back, I know I expect. Have a great evening


  2. What we know, we can grow. If we don’t know, we can’t grow. And we all need to grow. Have a great evening, too, Dag!
