An ILLUSION of UNION...
...is not what HE+ wants.
Here is a brave letter from a brave heart to the unfaithful heart of the beloved... read on...
I am returning this $1,000 you sent. Yes, there are crucial needs, but the greater need is for you to send your heart. I need not your money nor your presence here--- even as desperately lonely as I am without you--- until your heart returns to your home.
Without your heart, you see, both your presence and your money are shallow... leaving me more hurt and hollow than before.
Indeed, both your presence in the house and your gift of money is simply for you, an illusion to make you feel better about yourself. It is not an offering of real love nor does it meet real needs. I need you, not your gifts.
And as far as wanting to drop by to fix the steps and screen door, well, truly they have needed a lot of attention for a while--- but you are not the one to fix them. They will go without repairs until I find a pure-hearted person who does not need to do good deeds to build an illusion about himself.
I'll ask someone whose heart simply is available for the chore. Your heart, you see, is not. It is not available to the home you left and it would be illusionary for you to make it seem like it was.
Really, it would do more harm than good because a broken step is nothing compared to a broken heart. A torn screen door knows nothing of the pain of a torn and shredded covenant that once bound us together in love.
So, I am returning to you these offers of your presence here, your skills, and your money so that there is NO ILLUSION established that your heart is right with me... no illusion in your mind nor in anyone who should see or hear of your activities.
All I want is your heart... all of it.
Your loving--- but Truthful--- Covenant Spouse

"Well hath Isaiah prophesied of you hypocrites,
as it is written,
'This people honoreth ME with their lips,
but their heart is far from ME. '

recorded by Mark, chapter 7, verse 6.
Also see Isaiah 29:13
I have somewhat against thee,
because thou hast
left thy first love.
