A beautiful poem, Kelly. Sometimes we think we have to be either/or. But we can be both/and.
Thanks, Lisa. I find God quite often in the both.
Thanks for sharing this beautiful poem, Kelly!It reminds me of something I was thinking just last night, after a fun day with children and grandchildren, when I got home to enjoy sitting in the quiet dark of the porch, listening to the night sounds all around...realizing anew that as much as I enjoy the company of those I love I also enjoy the peaceful quiet of solitude.
You're welcome, Joe. Thanks for stopping by. Yes, that's it, exactly, not one or the other, but both in their own due time.
i think the older i get, the more and more I appreciate the silence after the lovely chaos that comes with an active family. really relate to this.
we have 5-6 sunflowers reaching up almost to the roof of our garage...love the symbolism here in this poem. I can easily "see it." I have been here before on your blog, and making sure i am subscribed. recently discovered Chronicles of Grace and that is where i found my way back here again.
I wish we'd planted sunflowers this year - we finally have the space, but I didn't think of it. Thanks so much for stopping by and joining in.
Spending time digging deep yields the biggest, brightest blooms. I love this beautiful writing and thought. ~Pamela
So true, Pamela. Thanks so much for stopping by.
