2-Minute Multiplier: Home
From party hats to wedding dresses
From special speeches to days of birth
Delivering joy and longing to be
Together and share in space and holding.
Of listening and being.
But also of times not fun but painful
Where words misspoke and poked
With plenty of anger birthed from fear
Of being deserted, ignored or worse.
Of being without. Unknown. Forgotten.
The normal condition of man-on-his-own.
The present today of garden-no-more.
So thankful my heart to be in a home
Where grace Divine
From Jesus the Giver
Pushes failings and faults
To the fore.
Out the door.
