Fallow Ground...


Oh, Lord Jesus, please break up the fallow ground within my hardened heart and plant Your seeds of love therein...

A Sound of Lapping...


When it is evening, when it is dark outside and my windows and front door are open, I hear the squeaking of bitty bats.

Hearing a sound the other night unfamiliar to my ears, I switched on the porch light and my eyes were met by the startled gaze of a striped cat who'd been partaking of the bird-flavored water in my little terracotta birdbath.
