held her hand last night's bright silver glow tide recedes
deep in thought
too many lives to count
wings of gratitude
Thankful for lives that have made the sacrifice for freedom. Please enjoy more of Steven Slack's work here.
innocent conversation macabre aftertaste drinks later?
Questions makes no sense
Sitting under a fog bank
sorrow on my brow
Vindicate me, O God, and plead my case
against an ungodly nation;
2For You are the God of my refuge.
Why have You rejected me?
Why must I walk in sorrow
3Send out Your light and Your truth;
let them lead me.
Let them bring me to Your holy mountain,
4Then I will go to the altar of God,
to God, my greatest joy.
I will praise You with the harp,
O God, my God.
5Why are you downcast, O my soul?
Why the unease within me?
Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him,
my Savior and my God.
There are days when sorrow is a heavy coat that holds you down like wet sand. Little can you move, sitting for the final toll.
Downcast yes but those burdens can be tossed to the one willing to bear all burdens.
There are few answers …
The pain stings…
Throw off the great weight or the tug of the tide might be too great. It’s pull merciless toward an embroiled sea of despair.

I don’t need to explain what grief is in a time when the flowers in so many gardens are weeping.
One of my patients, before she was put in isolation, told me that she thought about her husband every day.
“He was a good man. Always looking for ways to make me happy. It was unexpected- His heart just failed.”
I saw the tears in her eyes. They expressed gratitude as much as grief.
These times are hard. I wonder if my clients will survive this pandemic. When I said “goodbye” when the lock down started, I didn’t know what to expect. (I had to make a hard decision to call off until Covid is under control because I have a high-risk family member who I could not put at risk daily.)
The last quarantine I was part of I was locked in not out of the hospital.
I’m also missing Uganda very much. The weeping flower above is a spider lily from Uganda.
How about giraffes? They are so beautiful and graceful. The spots on that mama are one of a kind. I can watch these animals all day.
what’s your favorite animal to watch???
