A Low Roaring Sound

In spring when the snow melted off the ground, there soon would be a low roaring sound it was all of us kids flying by in the air so sweet with those metal roller skates attached to our feet.

We hung a skate key around our neck on a string and ventured out to see what the new day would bring.

The sidewalks back then gave us a bumpy ride, but some driveways were so smooth that our skates would just glide.

Looking back now, those skates were so awkward to use for they attached to the bottom of your shoes.

The key was the thing that tightened them there, and to us they were wings that let us soar up in the air.

We imagined we were birds as we sailed out to find with arms outstretched and our hair floating out behind, the adventures we were sure that we would see, playing in that moment we were truly free.

At times a skate would work loose and we'd fall to our knees but that's when we'd use that string that held the key; for that is what would make everything right, and once they were fixed, we were back on our flight.

I think now how Jesus is like that key, one that is always there, so close to me
and every time I stumble and fall, He is there to help make sense of it all.

I think of you and I skating along in the spring air, hand in hand venturing out to see what is there.

Every day a new adventure awaits just out of sight, and we have the key that leads us into His light.

I thank God for the joy He has given me, that where you are, my love, I may also be.

That together our hearts are filled with love ever new, finding new ways each day to say "I love you!"
