Tearing Down Walls

Currently my wife is tearing down walls

of our double-wide

making way for new walls

renovated spaces.

That’s relationship

right there

Being a badass

being bold enough to tear down walls,

which were good at the time,

but new ones are needed for growth

to build families and futures

and a new home

better than even the people before us knew.

Call Me By My Name

God called Mary the faithful one.

God called Gideon a mighty man of valor

Both were caught by surprise.

We get so obsessed with exterior image.

God, who created us,

calls us by a name that catches us totally by surprised.

Today, listen quietly for the voice of God,

He is whispering insights into your being,

into the totality of human existence.

Will you be present and aware enough to hear

the voice of God?
