Tonight’s darkness hovered without relief like storm clouds blanketing the mid-western sky, ruining my delightful date with dreams dancing in my head, strangling my whimsy.
Fear fretted away at my peace. Wearing away layer after layer until I lay almost naked and threadbare, fragile like veins under the transparent fabric of old skin.
All of me exposed on a cold metal sheet holding the contents of my life I pray, Dear God, let no one die today. I was speaking of my own loss but fell in the river of restless grief that overflowed with pleading tides. I couldn’t just pray for me.
My dog, one of my beating hearts is ill tonight. I pace as he does around me at night when he thinks I am in need. Tonight I am in need of his repair. So I pray and pace for him as he does for me, until the morning sun.
Is he okay now?
You have me wondering… concerned.
Peace and Blessings.
Yes! He is home with us:)
