Do You Love God?
Do you love God? Not watch out for God, like your boss, not worship God like a god, but desire God, like a lover? Do you forget things because you're in love? Do you want what's best for God? Do you think of God at odd moments, look for God everywhere, plot how to bump into them? Do you love being with God, just hanging out, hearing her voice? What do you love about God, his sense of humor? Their blessed shapeshifting? Do you care about what happens to God? About what it's like from their point of view? Do you think God is just the most beautiful thing in the world? What kinds of things do you do for God? Special favors?... little surprises?... constant acts of faithful love and devotion? Do you play jokes on them? Have a pet name?
Do you do stuff together? Is God, like, totally inside your head? Do you want God? Do you want God for God, not just for you? Do you love God?
