Exploring During Advent
Time to slow down,
to wait in the darkness.
Full of anticipation for what is to come.
Searching for answers,
for renewal and peace.
Taking comfort in His gift to all.
Exploring at Work
The stomping of young feet,
the gasps coupled with new discoveries.
Soaking up knowledge like a sponge.
Sponges with holes, slashes,
dry from curiosity having been smothered.
But hope for inquisitive hydration.
Exploring with GOTH
This old, cozy home
with its uncomplicated porch
is encompassed by a world of ignorance and doubt.
But the lantern inside,
nurtured by faith and love, investigation and desire,
establishes a foundation.
A motive for seeking truth,
the rugged truth with broken edges.
We jump into the unknown arm-in-arm, hand-in-hand.
No plan, no blueprint,
with only intuition to lead the way,
and hold on.
