To Muster a Duster

To Muster a Duster

“Affliction will either warm you up toward spiritual things or turn you cold.”

Joni Eareckson Tada
A Lifetime of Wisdom: Embracing the Way God Heals You

A Gift to Lift

A hanky may seem scant relief

When we, in the thickest of grief,

From woeful to worst,

Drift downward in thirst,

But surely it tops one’s own sleeve.

Still, somehow, as hand reaches out,

Connection may righten our route.

The simplest, small gift

A spirit may lift,

Relating a reasonable doubt.

Though rivers of tears may explode,

As we lumber under the load,

A mere word of peace

May offer release,

And send us renewed on the road.
