Faith Is An Ampersand — (Fuzzy Math)

My heart walks across the floor
The sound
Mirrors that of the lazy toddler in tow
Going forward he must
Reluctant
Going through the one foot in front of the other
Motions
Because Hope carries on
Moves onward  with remembering
Glory
Past faithfulness plus current trials
To the nth degree of wobbly faith
Equals holy hope
Counting the squared marks
Of the past like
Split-legged, one legged
Child-like faith travels down
Hopscotch chalk framed memories
Stories held in each

Shakily, I add up one thousand and one blessings

Of the  past
In the folds of memory
But right now
I bank solely on Hope
And  remembering alone
I cannot add
Disappointment muddies my math fuzzy
Faint and fadded dots
Seen by a half full  form of measuring
Come up
Less than
Don’t connect

James knew and told
Of storms
And Psalms come from
A dragging heart like lazy toddler steps
Obediently pressing on

But his Kingdom Come is at hand

Brilliantly
All adds up to wonderful
Glory be
Faith is the grace-ful ampersand
Connecting
All to Him
Mercy
Grace is the equalizer
And
Slowly
It
All adds up.
