Father God, thank You that we accept what we don’t expect. What we expect and don’t accept (BOTH) is our every fear and dread (BOTH). Because of Your Deflect and Specked (BOTH), we turn from our expectations. If the plank in our eye (and it’s often there), expect specks widespread (and they’re often there). Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ, said, “And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye?” (Matthew 7:3). If anyone were to tell me they cannot relate to this Bible verse, I would tell them they cannot relate to Jesus. It’s ONLY JESUS (see picture) for our Expectation, our Every Accept, our Celebration (see **** at the bottom of this sonnet), and our Every Well-Kept. Today, let us not expect them “unspecked.” Forever, help us accept what we don’t expect. I really need to say with this God Sonnet, “on a more personal note,” because the last two pictures I used did not have nonhuman animals in them. That hurts on my heart for them and does not heal off I go to help them. Suffice enough to say, I have not forgotten your pain and suffering, nonhuman animals, just because I didn’t include you in the last two pictures to the God Sonnets. Suffice enough to say, today and forever (BOTH), you are on my heart and off I go to help you. Oh, yeah, on another more personal note, there is one particular person in my life that I have the hardest time accepting who he is in my life. I don’t have to name names, Father God, because You know this name. Suffice enough to say, help me please to accept this particular person as exactly who he is in my life and not exactly who I need him to be in my life. I pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and ONLY NAME Jesus Christ, the Name above every other name, including my own name and the name of this one particular person in my life. This prayer is answered by my faith and my belief. Please help me, Father God, where my faith and my belief are lacking in not accepting what I don’t expect. Amen.

(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in accepting what I don’t expect forever and today, this daily leavened bread.”)

You need to accept what you don’t expect.

When you don’t accept this, you are in fear.

God has your fear covered with His Deflect.

Turn from expectations when they appear.

I need to accept what I don’t expect.

When I don’t accept this, I am in dread.

God has my dread gone to bed with His Specked.

The plank in my eye, expect specks widespread.

“Accept that I AM your Expectation,”

says Jesus. “I AM your Every Accept.

My Hurt on the Cross your Celebration****.

My Heal off the Cross your Every Well-Kept.”

Today, let us not expect them “unspecked.”

Forever, accept what we don’t expect.

(**** It happened again! The word, “celebration,” chosen in this God Sonnet can easily be replaced for a more personal reader experience with another 4-syllable word that rhymes with “expectation.” Visit RhymeZone at and search for rhymes with “expectation” and choose the 4-syllable word that speaks to you for this God Sonnet. Of course, if my choice of “celebration” did speak to you, thank you very much!😉)


  1. I take time to accept what I don’t expect. I don’t like curveballs. Accept what I don’t specked? Hardly, I need it to be gentle and a soft pitch. Don’t’ expect me to accept the rough stuff


  2. It’s that high level of sensitivity we share, Dag, that doesn’t want us to accept an expectant harsh pitch!
