Pastor’s Pondering 01/20/2021

If we live
With eyes open wide,
Hearts and minds engaged,
We have seen
Hope sitting on the curb,
Head bowed,
Tears in his eyes.

We have seen
Courage running
The other way.
We have even seen
Faith, and cheating
When he thought no one was looking.

But if we keep looking
We may yet see that love
Is resilient,
clever,
 And even wise.

When all else fails
She changes tactics,
Perseveres
, feints left,
Comes back and wins.

Just like a spider
Denied her web many times.
Only to spin again.
