For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.I Corinthians 5:7-8
I walked by turtles tucked deep,
when padding through dark wood;
drenched in forest where I stood.
Yet, she made not a single motion.
“Eggs”, was my very first notion.
Alabaster shells covered with
loamy earth. Now, she needed
time to rest. Tight soil seeded
from predator in towering sky.
Do you know turtles can’t fly?
At my desk, I still can clearly see
thin shelled turtles breaking out
of their nest, moving slowly about.
If only earthly work could be so,
wake each morning in faith and go!
