"He doesn't love me", she said almost in a whisper. "God doesn't love me too much". She looked up from the ground where she had been staring for the entire conversation.
His eyes were sea blue. She almost expected a dolphin to dive out of them. They looked at her with a lot of affection. Reassurance, the one thing she most needed, poured out from those deep oceans.
"You know things have never been easy for me", she softly continued. "Never". Her stare settled to the ground again. "I still love God, and I really trust Him".
His expression softened. "You should!", his voice was coarse but in it was the love that made her believe in herself. Things would be alright soon. Soon.
