This is a window in a lovely stone church in Mason, Michigan, where my family gathered this evening to pray with the community on the courthouse lawn for the National Day of Prayer.

My husband and kids just picked me up from work and are going to the hospital to visit my father-in-law.  The photo is the view from the passenger side window.  What a beautiful night!

Avoidance


image

Sometimes when I’m lying in my bath,
Water as hot as I can make it
Coloring pale skin red,
I fixate on the shower head
To turn off my thoughts –
They chase me everywhere
Often bigger than my control of them,
They’ve never taken to leashes or cages
Though there are a few medications that quieten them.
Some days I wish I were simpler,
Possessed of smaller, shallower musings…
I repeat to myself it is what it is
And fix my gaze on the shiny shower head,
Avoiding the inward looking
As well as window dreaming.

From my window

I didn’t lie about being uninspired, but something about the snow on the branches outside an upstairs window caught my eye; I like trees, what can I say?  Also, as you can see, I didn’t lie about the weather here today, either 😉
