come and tell me

  we're playing baseball in the front yard, and i'm pitching. and i don't bother telling anyone that i don't know how to pitch, of course, because i'm stubborn like that. he spits (for the hundredth time) and chokes up on the bat, and i throw it, because we're stubborn like that. and when he takes off for first base, which is a mud puddle, the sunshine is honey brown on our skin. freckles screams and runs for the ball, and i laugh until my side aches. (there's a garden, and i know it's not dead. i know it's not. i won't let it be.)


   {the hope of you is like an apple tree in winter.}


  the last time i dreamed, i woke up with amnesia. for i could not remember the pain of the past anymore, and all i knew was birdsong streaming through my open window, like love through a summer heart. and if i did remember it at all, it was as a nightmare that had been blown away, until it was just a shadow. His Love makes me forget. i am here, waiting like a little girl looking over the wall to a secret garden that is all her own. (come and tell me that it's all wick. that it's always been wick.)


   {one day my arms will be full of your blossoms.}


               ---



HEEYYYYYYYYYYYY. Easter Morning is coming, and I am so full of Hope and Light that I can hardly hold it in. Christ's death is my salvation, and His resurrection is my life, and man, I'm ready for Spring to come. Winter is over. No more mourning. x


in other news, i'm loving the answers to the giveaway thing. that's some pretty brave stuff there. much loves.

  1. lead me to the Rock that is higher than i.

    you're my girl. and there is a road that winds over Cuchara River and through a small town whose sidewalks are littered with blooming flowers and budded trees. once you hit the edge of town, there is my favorite hill that swarms with warmth and sticky fingers in summer (and if you go the other way, there is a brown house with two sisters). wave at the mountains for me on Easter morning. yawn with the resurrection of Christ and let that air make it's way all the way down to your toes.
    He's good. we are something new this year. i'll run my hands through the sunrise over here in the city full of hidden hope. x

  7. "i am here, waiting like a little girl looking over the wall to a secret garden that is all her own."

    one of my favourite(-estest) lines in this stunning piece (it took so much self control not to just copy and paste the whole lovely thing because ADORES. really.)

    i am sitting and the night is quiet and it's one hour into easter Sunday (timezones, y'all hehe). and all i can think about it this piece and the wonder of how much He can love our broken souls, whom too often pretend we can do it by ourselves. drowning in a sea of His love & that's okay.

    let the Light shine into our hearts & all glory be His, forever. happy Easter you dear thing xx

    1. OH YOU WONDERFUL GIRL.

      all i want to do is cry, so i'll try not to do that. drowning in a sea of His Love is exactly where i'm at too, and there's no place i'd rather be. funny how i thought i could just dangle my toes in the water. but now i'm desperate to go farther out, until there's nothing but ocean.

      all glory be His, forever. amen. oh, if today held at least half of the joy i wished for you, you'd have too much. x
