that amazing grace.

the anger slips like time
with every breath for thanks
and toddler/teenage angst against the hearing Father
subsides.

I have deep wonders -
I don't have answers
to questions shot forth
from the rumblings of distressed soul.


rather, I have more of Him
a map of His face, rather than the road ahead
and a heart knowing His gift giving behind.
amazing grace, sufficient

more of Him as I lost
and was found:
rest,
time,
deep laughter,
glimpses of sparkling eyes and souls



thanking Him for:

  • Ann Voskamp
  • FD
  • fresh market fair
  • warm smells of summer-end
  • first IV, in! WOOP!!

This is so rich! "rather, I have more of Him . . as I lost and was found:" I love how it evokes traces of the hymn and plays on the words. Beautiful!
