~ Peniel ~


As I wrestle with issues,

As we wrestle with collective struggles,

and as our children lose sleep,

when they shouldn’t have a care in the world;

Have patience and continue.

As I ford the river in darkness,

As we travel side-by-side in rusty metal boxes,

and as our children hide beneath desks

in monthly drills,

when they should be creating;

Have grit and grace and continue.

As I fail to see the purpose in destruction,

as we neglect to see those that need the most help,

and as our children continue to ask why,

when they’re rapidly learning that we

don’t have all the answers;

Have faith and continue.

For once we become face to face,

all will make sense.

All will be light, and all will be joy.

Until the day of utmost clarity,

in the bell towers of memory,

let us continue to struggle, to wrestle,

to care, to love, and to persevere.



Genesis 32:22-32

Being heard, stirred, and perhaps cured by life's many hidden images and the written-spoken word.
