The mornings arrived, but I’m not ready!
Its not yet daylight and my room is rather cold.
Lets talk about you for a minute, yes you!
How are you doing? . . . Seriously how are you ‘really’ doing?
I ask because, last night a friend and I began a discussion pertaining reconciliation, about letting those who caused us pain or let us down in the past, back into our lives.
As we talked a few other friends arrived and the conversation became meaty. Veins protruded from tense neck muscles, as past hurts were summoned to mind and distant injustices re-calibrated.
I Forgive You. . .
They hurt you . . .I know!. . .they really hurt you!. . .
I heard the words that dribbled from their mouth last week, when they thought we couldn’t hear!.
They were harsh words, barbed words and each one delivered with such force. . .
Shocked, I watched you hide in the doorway shadows,
dying with each exhale of their mouths.
I’m sat drinking a refreshing drink of Pepsi, I love the way the ice wrestles with the liquid, striving to stay alive, yet with every second its life is squeezed from it. . .
. . .’mesmerising!’. . .
I don’t actually ‘love’ Pepsi!, it’s just the word I use to say “hey I like that!”. . .
I’m sat munching my way through a quick snack! Mash potatoes with tuna!. . followed by a chunk of shortbread. . .delicious!. . .
A mate of mines just asked me a question ‘How do we tell someone about GOD, who isn’t asking!. . .
I’m on a bus, a rather stuffy bus, in fact I might open one of these grubby looking windows!. . .
I’m pondering. . .If someone was to ask me who is this ‘GOD’ that everyone keeps talking about, what would I say!.
You see it’s quite easy to become ‘over familiar’ with GOD, & to gently place HIM in a neat compartment within our lives, just like you would an expensive ornament!.
