I’m trying to neaten up and organize my office again. I still have a long way to go. One of the things I’ve been doing is looking through old notebooks to see if there’s anything I can use, or to see if it can be gotten rid of. I found one, just now, labeled “Amber Stuff” and flipped through it, seeing all the instructions I’d written out for my mother-in-law on her medicine schedule, use of her feeding pump and lift, as well as pages from the LINGO game we played, packing lists for various trips to Indiana, and prayers. I toyed with the idea of getting rid of it, as a step toward letting go, but ended up putting it in a memento box instead.
I found this little snippet of a poem-type essay. Not sure what it is really, but I thought I’d share. I may share other snippets in the future as I clean. Then again, I may let it drop like I did my Favorite Things series that dwindled fast. Sorry about that, but life interfered and now my mind is elsewhere.
Here is what I found written in a blue notebook.
“A God you can’t pin down
You can’t keep Almighty God in your pocket
or wave Him like a magic wand.
You can’t dissect and understand Him
the way you think you should
you cannot fit God into a mold you make up
He won’t jump through your hoops
like a trained dog.
And He won’t stand still
so you can stare
He won’t stay nailed to your cross
He won’t stay dead.
He’s alive and mighty and beyond your ken
His ways are a mystery
But when He speaks, when He lets you in,
you’d better listen and take it in
His words are life.
Take it for what it’s worth, but, it did intrigue me so I thought I’d share.
