Pendulum

begin again

I wrote a micro poem for my other blog, trying to capture the feeling of these precarious moments.

I kept thinking, “Surely we’ve survived something like this before.”

A scroll through my backyard photos gave me the answer.

January

It is his first snow.

“Daddy, the ground is all gone!”

“Son, it will come back.”


June

What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.

He has made everything beautiful in its time.

Ecclesiastes 1:9; 3:11

I'm just a regular guy who was
tempted to lose all hope but did not. It was God who made the difference.

Thanks for stopping by, and stopping by, and stopping by today! I know you are a busy guy, so I’m humbled that you take the time to catch up on my posts. Like you said, it’s crazy hard right now. However, I share your optimism for the future. God’s best to you.

Thank you, Beth. The snow pictures on my phone reminded me of what my son said years ago, which led me to look for a summer picture when the ground was back. It was certainly a God Wink moment putting it all together. I’m glad it spoke to you as well. Blessings.

David, the simple statements and truths of your poem are so deep one needs to sit on it and think on its implications especially in light of Ecclesiastes and all that has been transpiring over this last year. I think I’ve been saying to my Heavenly Father, “Daddy the ground is all gone.” There is such peace and joy in resting on my Father’s response.

Beautiful quote! Your story reminds me of a fall morning when my young son, Zachary, looked out the window and said, “Hey, someone took all the leaves!” I can still hear the indignation in his voice. Every season is beautiful in its time.
