Fallen Son

I am a person whose past is passed
whose future is not yet
and whose present is.
This is to say that in everything I do,
I try to be present.
Mind chatter: ruminations of passed, worries of yet to come, all invade my thinking.
I try to catch them
catch and release them before they get added
a priori
to my long tail
My long tail of who I imagine myself to be.
I fail with alarming routine.
I chastise.
I sink.
I drag.
And then I remember.
So I try again.
Up and down.
Back and forth.
In and out.
Predictable consequences of a fallen son.
But.
But I am
nonetheless
a son.
And this is the strand that I pick up. On that short upward swing that follows the plummet. This is my leg-up.
If I can find that strand.
Then over and over again,
I can surround my bruised and harassed shell with a soft place
To make my stand.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

'a soft place to make my stand,' I have read this many times, and that phrase always tugs at my heart.I think that we all crave such a place. This life is often so very hard.Keep the faith and we will all get there someday.... God Bless. Elizabeth.
