Hey, dear friends. Wanted to be back to some in-depth writing. Didn’t want this to be a prolonged break…but, looks like it will be. I just can’t seem to summon up anything but the dreariness I have been facing…and this space isn’t intended to be about that. It’s in the byline-It’s not about me. It’s about Him.
So…all this to say this honest little bit of poetry is my final piece to you- for a while. I hope to come back down the road a ways.
Thank you for your love, prayers, and concern. Know I hold the same for you in my heart.
I can’t do this anymore…
At least, not for quite a while.
Not packing up exactly,
Not erasing these efforts as in days past
Nor leaving an empty store.
To that determination I’m holding fast.
Just…can’t keep coming here right now
With my dialed-in smile.
Feels like any could spot it as a fake
For half a mile.
Nor can I keep comfortably coming,
Wagging this laundry bag of sorrow
And try to claim it’ll be scrubbed
Bright for the morrow.
Right now…it’s just not.
And I am caught
Without a pretty phrase left to my coffers.
No ready cheer, no heady offers.
So…it’s silence for the time being.
Not sure how long
Nor what this round of solitude will bring.
All I do know is that
I know Jesus is wherever the road takes me.
All I can rest in is that He never forsakes me…
And so He never forsakes any of us.
Until such a time as I feel He’s calling me back to this space…
Thanks for reading. Blessings and prayers to you, dear friends. ❤
