(a slight remake of a FB post from late November, since deleted)
Walk into the empty home built
To contain your dreams
And start decorating.
Not with nicknacks and plasticized toys
But with quality craftsmanship and soulful artwork.
Create your own furniture
Crafted of solemnly harvested timber
From the deep woods of your own heart
Paint pictures from the episodes of your life
To hang on the walls
Showing all those invited inside
The expansive nature
Of your wandering
And hinting that
For all your travels
You never even once
Left the sacred realm
Of Creator's gift of grace.
And, once you fully occupy this home
Once it is truly yours
Bake us some cookies
And bring them
