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.

Absolution

What a wonderful word!

The idea of our past mistakes being forgiven absolutely.

Are there still consequences for our actions? You bet.

But now we are not stuck in the past,

having instead been given a new way truth and life in which we can walk,

a future of promise.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD,

“plans to prosper you and not to harm you.

Plans to give you hope and a future.”

-Jeremiah 29:11
