I left the lights on for you.

https://music.youtube.com/watch?v=fiR18oC4eiI&feature=share

Life has been tough, beloveds. We have endured much.

We have received, seemingly, very little, in return.

We have cried, many a tear.

We have received, repeatedly, very little, in return.

We have given, our all.

We have received, undoubtedly, very little, in return.

We have lost, lots. Yet, lots more loss, was required.

We have recieved, admittedly, very little, in return.

Losing, crying, dying slowly, inside.

Faith, tested, bested, found wanting, instead.

‘Til defeated, depleted, we made the slow march, towards, home.

Not knowing, not showing, not growing, seemingly, failing, spectacularly, at this thing, called life.

Tired, so tired, of twists, of turns, of curves. We long for home, for stillness, for peace, for comfort to call our own.

Thinking, home waiting, in judgement, for us to come, our heads, downcast, we trudge ahead, with dread, of homes’ dark welcome, soon to bear.

Almost home, we see a glow, just beyond. Not hoping, scared hopeless, our downcast heads, too afraid to lift.

Breathlessly, hoping, the glow, might be meant for us, we gather our courage, lift our heads, bow them, again, in reverence, by what we see, up ahead.

There! Home! There, God and Life, waits for us. For, They have a feast prepared!

Lights, ablaze. Music, dancing, Their Open Arms, waiting for you, awaiting me!

Amazed, humbled, tired, hungry, we tumble, into Their Arms. The Loving Arms, of God, of Life, of Care. They fold us, tenderly, into Love that has ALWAYS been there.

Pulling us, into His Arms, God, Our Father said but one thing:

I left the lights on for you.

His and yours,

Cassandra
