Radical Love 



I am a sinner, yes, a creature of imperfections,
I look at myself and pick apart every tiny thing,
then I use what I see to beat myself. And yet…
He loves me.


How do I merit
such devotion as this?
Why do I deserve such
awesome attention from Him?
Is there anything more I have to do
to have Him love me?
Jesus says He comprehends me 
even more intimately                        Psalm 139:13 
than I can ever comprehend myself.
I want to object since I do believe 
that I know myself totally. And yet...
He loves me! 


This is not just love as I know it,
From Him it is Radical Love.


This man welcomes sinners and eats with them. Luke 15:2

About the Poet
Michelle Angelini, aka Chelle, has been writing poetry for over 40 years. She has been published in many Southern California chapbooks and calendars. I am retired and dealing with my health issues. My Saviour, Jesus is always with me. God holds me within His wings. I am working slowly on a second book poetry and possibly my photography. And, I'm over 65 now and still loving it, even though my social life is not what it once was because of the painful fibromyalgia. It's quite frustrating, but I know Jesus still has "work" for me to do to show how much He blesses me.
