My house: kitchen, living room, bedrooms, bathrooms, hallway
My neighborhood: Ash, 1st, 7th, Madison
My town: church, park, library, WalMart
My world is small but I know You are big enough
to care for the smallest of things.
Sometimes I feel my life is the short end of the stick,
that I should be out more
going, doing, being, stretching, growing.
But for now I’m like that grain of sand in the oyster,
perhaps just an irritant to the world,
but if I persevere, maybe something beautiful, like a pearl.
