She was my unexpected gift today...a reminder that my life is a cycle of seasons. She sat there, blinking, turning her head. I wanted a picture, but figured she'd be gone by the time I ran to the basement for the zoom lens that would be able to capture her. I ran, I prayed she'd stay. She did...she was my gift. Seasons seem long while we are in them, but quickly change. This season I sit in is a blink, it will change. What can I learn while I'm here? What does God want me to see? To learn?
I thought this morning about a poem that hung once in my MIL's home.
For babies grow up, I've learned to my sorrow.
So, settle down cobwebs, dust go to sleep.
I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep."
My tomorrow has come, my babies are all grown up...now I wait, wait for whatever is next.
