Ten fingers, ten toes.
Chubby cheeks, and heaven knows
what even the next days would hold,
let alone how three years unfold.
Three years did pass, and Time has found us
pleading, please let us stay.
Let us wake up in the morning
finding it the same as yesterday.
Time refrained, yet Wisdom answered:
“The past contains a thousand gifts,
the present thousands more.
Don’t sacrifice a lifetime of todays
for what little came before.”
I’ll turn then, not from the past,
but to both what’s here and heretofore,
Reminiscing of a thousand days,
bounding forward into evermore.

I am married to the love of my life, and am a father to four beautiful children.
It’s been made clear to me that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. In the pursuit for truth and meaning, I have found there is no higher calling one can aspire to than to do that which God has planned for them.
When writing "response" pieces (as opposed to some personal work I post here), I seek to develop content that doesn’t merely take a stance (“for” or “against”), but goes to the heart of the matter to reveal an ethic that speaks louder than opinion. Developing content for A Response gives me great satisfaction as I discern and highlight overlooked truths in situations that confront us on a daily basis. View all posts by A Response
