Lost Words

See the words hanging there?
Scattered with ellipsis--
Memories and ideas trying to escape
While time ticks on,
The steady strum of each tick--
     the silence of the words
Left unspoken,
Each word fights for a place
A snug and comfortable fit
On a littered page,
     crisp with other words
Carving a niche for itself
Creating a path to some story
Lost in the dangling and forgotten
     for their time in silence.

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.
