Without the walls and windows
we’ve known and counted on
to host our fellowship,
will I see you much?
Will we find new places
to continue navigating
one another’s personalities
for the betterment of our hearts
and our character?
I want my children to know you well –
how funny you are, how clever,
how imperfect and important.
I want my children to know your children
better than most, in an inside way.
You are my people!
I know the Lord will have us neighbors,
talking and building
But that’s long off,
and a lot of earth and time to travel
without seeing you much
and knowing you well,
and sharing the rocky funny holy view
with siblings who see it too.
Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. – Isaiah 43:19
Emily, a wonderful, loving post….especially after the many conversations of the weekend.
Much love, Lori

This makes me feel…a little sad yet hopeful and leaves me with this knowledge that whether we see it or not, God will make it work.
What a gift – this poem, a fresh lens to help us all see more clearly. Or maybe that was just my tears. . .
We will always have walls and windows for fellowship dear sister, even if they look different from before. And we need to always remember that the doors are wide open and the invitation is constant. Let’s hang!
