I started to say I stumbled across this wonderful blog but then realized there was no stumbling.
As I am learning to walk this new life of pain and waiting I am steadily seeking God. He is so good, so faithful! He has led me to such wisdom and love in so many blogs. I have been especially blessed by this one "Seedlings in Stone"
The author L.L. Barkat proposed a writers challenge, I thought I'd try it so here it is.
I close my eyes and I can still see...
Tires crunch against tiny rocks
ears like minutemen jump to attention
clinking jangling keys set a tail in motion
with one swift twist levers give way
the knob turns as the door opens
licking, wagging, jumping, barking, yelping
dust and fur float through the air
highlighted by the setting sun streaming through the kitchen window
kicked up by happy paws and work boots
welcome home my friend I've missed you
