The Bittersweet Melody

We are all crying

our free-will offerings

to a faithful God

as the bittersweet melody

of our life

moves us to tears.

A young girl running in a meadow: Chasing the Laughter

We are all chasing

the laughter that echoes

off

fleshly corridors,

but every extension of our reach

brings tears:

overjoy and

devastation

all lead to the self-same

place—

our hearts cannot contain

nor fathom

where we’re headed

through the blur.

Drenching rain on a street: Where we're headed through the blur.

Each tear leaves a trail

to the edge of our longing

an infinite canyon

we cannot span

A person at the top of a cliff: To the edge of our longing

With you, I lean over

dropping

salt-encrusted memories

as gifts to

 Christ, Righteous

and True

who whispers—Take heart,

weary one

our separation will end

at the last trump—it is done!

And the thread that holds us

taut

and

tangled

His touch

shall dissolve to greater

Being

and all our crying will cease

to have a home.

 

 

They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him. Psalm 126:5-6

 

 

 

Our Father sees our tears. There is hope in the bittersweet melody we sing to Him. If you are sorrowful, come and read about the hope we have in Him. #sorrow, #hope, #loneliness, #Christ

      Oh, Brenda, thank you for the compliment. (If you only knew how much I struggle with each word, all the while doubting my abilities. Does any of this resonate with you?)
      Loved that you stopped by, dear friend. I hope today surrounds you with springtime beauties.
