A cold morning finds
a mama worried –
about a Soldier,
a ministry-minded middle
and an orange hair, freckle face olive shoot.
They’re not in trouble or doing anything wrong (or at least not that
I, I mean she know/s of!).
Two hours later
she reads Scripture for a weekly Bible study
God tucks comfort and assurance into her heart.
“It is good for a man to bear the yoke
while he is young.”
Lamentations, of course, this totally makes sense
This mama can be
a big time lamenter
And just like that
Worries find solace and melt away.
On this January day
