Favorite Quote:
But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.
1 Peter 3:15 


I wasn't expecting
more than a giggly situation/
with the chance of a flirtation/
and the certainty of fine muscles.

I wasn't prepared
for a mouthful of tears?
and shaking hands that couldn't breathe?
when two shining eyes fixed on me.

I wasn't ready
to break into my own heart--
in order to see his--
open like a weeping rain cloud.

So I choke on my mourning
and cough up my sympathy
in wheezing
gasping

words

words never say enough.

It totally catches me off-guard when people open up to me...and I never know what to say.
