I drafted the below on February 6th of 2011. Never published.
Ok, fine. I will write the title of this post and come what may, Lord.
I just want some relief from those three words.
What is it that I have lost and found?
Or perhaps in this season,
it's more like a counter-clockwise motion
around the mystery of these contrary terms.
Either way, I feel like I'm spinning.
Yes, I lost my job.
Yes, I lost my only uncle.
Yes, within weeks, I lost my only aunt.
What have I yet to find?
Lord, make me your Miriam; leading the praise for the captives of time.
FAST FORWARD to today when I find this in my drafts.
I see that last sentence of prayer being answered, undoubtedly.
