visitors

 

can you gather up

the blessings of your life

lived until today and

can you see that not all

have come as good

but often arrive as visitors

you did not wish for

nor welcomed

into your home

know that these

bless much deeper

    I love surprises and my husband can’t stand it if things don’t go to plan. But he is so good at planning surprises and keeping them secret – reminds me of Jack Sprat and his wife 🙂

    My husband literally just reminded me of this lesson, this blessing, yesterday. I find it difficult to deal with some of his family, as does he, but they are the ones whose challenging love sanctifies us. Thank you, Paul.

    The unexpected that makes us softer, stronger, better versions of ourselves. The ‘visitors’ of our lives that challenge us. I like your take on this prompt, Paul.

    Some obnoxious elements do cause bother sometimes. A natural phenomenom, perhaps!

    “can you see that not all / have come as good / but often arrive as visitors / you did not wish for…” Visitors in the forms of setbacks, dread trials, horrible tribulations. Dead ends that become the pathway to something other. Taking a deep breath of pain to really breathe.
