heartbeat beat
and errand run
laundry love
and dishes done
patient pause
forgive the cracks
twinkled grin
and knowing acts
co-care kids
and cook the meal
for daily deals
head the house
with God at heart
making space
for moving parts
teammate mate
and ally true
beloved you


“They slipped briskly into an intimacy from which they never recovered.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald

We love because he first loved us. – 1 John 4:19
