pain steals in soft
tempted by exposed underbelly
pearly whites gnaw
savour slow the flesh of broken hearts
main course destruction
faith foamed and frothed
redeems gnashed, broken ingredients
becomes sweet dessert
Oh , this is good Melody. So glad that He tenderly redeems!
Me, too! There is nothing that can’t be risen above, nothing that can’t be reworked by grace. I love that!
I’m feeling those teeth, praying for more grace. God bless you–and Happy Thanksgiving, whenever y’all have it up north.
Being highly digestible is truly uncomfortable. But – the sweet end to the meal, where grace redeems the troubles – now, THAT’S some good eating!!
Amen–and HE is pouring on the “gravy”, so I feel much better already. Bless you this week!
Oooh – G-R-A-V-Y!!
I know, it’s magical (holy)–like giving a lollypop to a crying 5-yr old. So…is there gluten free gravy, or what do you do? I seem to recall your system can’t handle gluten.
G-free gravy can be almost as good as the real deal – thank goodness!
Whew, I’m relieved for you!
Hey Mel, are you familiar with the book, “Heaven Is Real”? About the Nebraska pastor’s 4-yr old son who, during a medical crisis, went to Heaven–and came back to tell about it? I couldn’t put the book down when I read it some years ago, and now I just watched the movie–fabulous. What made me think of you is that the movie was filmed in Canada. If you get a chance, see it–keep the tissues handy at the glorious ending.
It’s on my must-see list. Will buy a big box of Kleenex!!
I wasn’t expecting the sweet dessert at the end!
I hereby reserve my right to ‘surprise Lyle’ in any way, by any means I deem necessary, herein and forthwith. 🙂 Tongue in cheek aside, I never expected the dessert in my own life, either! Redemption is always palatable -and truly delicious! It is my choice to turn those broken ingredients into something worth savouring. I don’t always get the recipe right, but when I do – wow!
