Pastor’s Pondering – June 6, 2018

My latest home-improvement project

Is a coop, which must be built


Nothing that is meant to be in

Can get out,

And more important,

So that nothing which is meant to be out

Can get in.


The more important is the harder,

Any one of countless unknowns

Can foil my plan.


And yet don’t we say

That when God closes a door

God opens a window?


Yes, and yes-

The persistent widow kept on knocking

On the same old door,

Wearing out her knuckles.


That window may come in handy,

Later, for a project

Still unconceived.
