I was getting in my car. I was leaving early, there was still talking going on. Those three adults closed out youth group. Jerry and Sharon were talking when I was listening to Michelle. Then when I was talking about how I haven’t had time to be excited about China, everyone listened to me. Jerry told me about how the waters of the Red sea didn’t part until the Egyptians were charging down the hill, and how the Israelites didn’t know anything was wrong until they saw the dust cloud.
I was getting into my car, and I look up at the front of the church were those three adults were the last to leave and still talking. Jerry was still talking about his dad, and my mind was still in old Tuolumne. A time when Motherlode’s gym was Summerville’s. When the Market was the ball fields. When there was a Constable of Tuolumne. And then something Mona said popped in my mind, and I saw something that I could be. And I thought, I won’t let it happen, now I can see it.
After sharing about China, Michelle got a ‘dad’ hug from Jerry. Then something a little weird. She got a piggy-back ride. Sharon shared that the first time Jerry and Michelle did that, it broke things off. I was afraid that Jerry was going to be broken.
I got in my car, and went home.

You get two post for the price of one!

Maybe tomorrow I will do nothing.
        I will come home and sit.
                Sit and do nothing.
Maybe tomorrow…


When you laugh you’ll feel my breath there, filling up your lungs.
And when you cry, those aren’t your tears, but I’m there falling down your cheek.
And when you say you love him, taste me, I’m like poison on your tongue.

But when your tired, if your quiet, you’ll hear me singing you to sleep.

Says she’s got time, says she’s got time on her side,
Running the room, commanding the late-boys’ eyes…

Lunch. Big lunch. And then dinner. Small dinner, but only cause I had a big lunch.
Some crazy stuff. I might know of some work for some people who like working light construction and some landscaping. I think that is it. I will leave you with more Anberlin.

Your black dress in disarray…
