every tear

 

For the Lamb …will lead them
To springs of water.
And God will wipe away
Every tear from their eyes.
Revelation 7:17

 

My Dad

I grew up hearing his stories
but not this story
of being forgotten
 
his mother left him many times
before the final leaving
she took her children to the movie theatre
(age seven, five and four)
leaving them there alone
choosing wine and party
 
they waited hours after the movie
for her to remember and return
a kind man had compassion
and waited with them
 
my heart travels to the past
and breaks
for the loneliness,
the pain,
the future abandonment
waiting around the corner
 
looking at them
I can see their future
I know the amazing things
they will accomplish
because they will be captured
by One who rescues hearts
 
 
For my parents:
Happy forty-fourth wedding anniversary!
God has used your marriage to flow
“springs of living water” into my life. 
With love, Sara
