Tell Me A Story

Tell Me A Story

tell me a story all covered and cloacked in miracle and love

hope and wonder, the starring roles

tell me a story all colored in bright, shaded in laughter loud and so long

start near the end where things are closed, grafted in love and tender delight

each stands alone and each one merges in love with the others

no open unendings, no unfinished business

no, add the happily everafters all day long

or even everafters will do, they’ll do

tell me a story all knitted and sewn by hand in love

stitches of  tender mercies  mixed with intimate whispered i love yous

and tell me a story

i won’t miss a word

of family present bound by blood, tears and  love

the one where they are joined together so very tight

all wrapped in bright shiny, like packages with bows

gifts from Good Giver, presents of love

stop at the good parts, rest there awhile, turn your page slowly

rush not, don’t hurry

please tell it slow and steady in every detail

rest and pause often, stop at the good parts

savoring the best places and times

tell me a story of love and forgiveness

tell me a story of family redemptive

tell me a story, uniquely mine

  1. What a hopeful and beautiful piece, friend! One of my favorites. I adore the hopeful expectation and wonder in the lines, and this: “rest and pause often, stop at the good parts…savoring the best places and times…tell me a story of love and forgiveness…tell me a story of family redemptive..” Amen!

  2. Beautiful writing, inspiring, hopeful. “Knitted… stitched… mixed…joined…rush not, don’t hurry…tell it slow and steady…” Love these rich words. You are a blessing!
