ch. XV

Julian swung many times
between over-ruling spiritual delight
and dark weakness of soul
where faith, hope and love
had tenuous hold.

She learned God keeps us safe
in these worse times.
There are natural, normal swings
with many causes;
not always sin of our own.

He wants us to know He keeps us safe.
Pain and low moods are temporary.
Overflowing joy is eternal.

This blessing, this overflowing, is not earned;
It is freely given joy
and permitted woe.

Both are one Love.
