As I dug through the attic hoping somehow to reduce the clutter and rid myself from guilt rising out of the compulsion to keep and store everything, I saw this old crumpled worn folder. It resonated a familiar but abandoned song of desire in the depth of my being. It contained the distant renderings of a passionate longing heart. I threw it in another plastic bucket with some miscellaneous pieces of this and that, thinking I would get back to it later. The old saying out of sight out of mind took on personal meaning for me that day. My precious tattered folder was lost among a myriad of items we decided to consign online. I never pursued the thought again until one day the box was sitting next to the items destined for Good Will. My heart skipped a beat, expressing a sense of thankfulness as I thought what a break. I hauled the box into the house and dug out the faded old collection of poems written some twenty years ago. As I nestled in my favorite chair with coffee in hand, a sense of destiny enveloped me. Tears streamed down my face as I read things written by a person I didnít really remember anymore. I felt I was standing outside looking into a revelation of a life that had come full circle. Every poem I read reminded me of my heavenly Fatherís faithfulness. I sat there with my faded memories in one hand and the book I am writing in the other, thinking of how this life of mine consists of one break after another. The reconciliation of the person I was and the person I am will be part and parcel of the person I am to become. The only thing that ever remains the same is the commitment and faithfulness of our God.

Please space your writing. Many people will be turned off when they see it'll be a difficult peice to read. You use beautiful vocabualry and have a very elequent writing gift. I did find tht the topic wasn't used as a central point in this article. Also, in a few parts it was difficult to follow. But, good job and keep writing!

This was very beautiful writing. For readers though is much easier on the eyes if we writers space between paragraphs. I loved the message at the end. Truly reached a wonderful conclusion to your story. God certainly is control throughout our lives. God bless ya, littlelight

Wonderful message. I've done the same: never throw anything away, and then years later, read it again and remember how much God has done. Some work on grammar and punctuation and you've got a winner.
