Deforestation

Can’t see the forest

for the family

trees, these black and blue

recessive genes; if I

fall in the shadows,

will anyone hear?

    Mmmm…I hope we are all ears and would notice.

    Well…they didn’t hear me in my house, which is why I probably write poetry today. Nonetheless, I practice the Presence of a Redemptive and Loving God–so when I’m craziest, can’t see in the dark, His hand reaches for mine, His voice says, “I’m right here”.

    Reminds me of Job 14:7 β€œFor there is hope for a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that its shoots will not cease.” πŸ™‚

      There is always hope when we have the choice of where to sink our roots…even if we need to rebuild, or start from scratch. I love Job’s story so much – thanks, Heidi!

    Sometimes we wonder…but the answer is yes. We would notice!
