A Teddy Bear's Love

On the highest shelf,
Pristine beneath layers of thick dust,
Absent from the eyes and lost in the mind
Gently worn, to the point of comfort
Sits my favorite teddy bear.
He waits to be embraced again,
For the dust to be swept away
And my eyes to light up --
But he sits higher than I can reach
My arms and legs still shrunken and small
Unable to brush fingertips across fur...
Unable to claim a memory
Only half forgotten,
Distant in vision but clear in the mind --
Soft and patient; unconditional
Awaiting my attention.

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
