Steeping In Fellowship

 (photo by Carolyn K. Knefely)

Rain pounded the windshield. The windshield wipers slapped the stinging rain drops off its face with horrendous speed.

With eyes that were wide awake at 5:10 a.m., I inch my way down the dark and empty road that reflects crashing liquid from unseen clouds. There was beauty in the danger before me with the rain dancing on the road.  However, I make it early to the restaurant that opens at 5:30 a.m. so our Bible study could begin at 6:00 a.m.

The rain in gulfed my car with faster speed when I turned off the engine. I had a few minutes to pray before getting out of my dry cocoon. With unexpected inspiration the words below flowed from my pen. I was not sad when I wrote them but what poured from my heart is how I feel about sharing moments with a friend over a teacup. Therefore, my friend I want to share them with you now.

 

Come sit with me
over a cup of tea. 

My heart is heavy.
Tears seep from
my soul.

A listening ear
that is near
helps me to embrace
the challenges that I face.

 The tea is sweetened
by fellowship
and the comfort of your smile.

 I’ll make it to tomorrow
because you sat with me
for a while.


Grace and peace by yours in abundance 
through the knowledge of
God and Jesus our Lord. 
2 Peter 1:2

Uplifting Blessings,
Carolyn

Throughout the great scheme of things you get a B+ with regard to effort. Where you actually lost us was on all the details. As it is said, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be much more true in this article. Having said that, let me inform you what exactly did do the job. Your text can be very engaging and this is probably why I am making an effort to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, even though I can notice the jumps in logic you come up with, I am not certain of exactly how you appear to unite your details which in turn help to make the final result. For the moment I shall subscribe to your issue however hope in the future you actually connect your facts much better. windshield replacement come to you
