Dear King....

Ever have those moments when life's flurry melts away,
 
and you realize
 
an emptiness so deep
 
it stops you in your footsteps
 
to wonder
 
why you're feeling so down and out of sorts
 
when moments ago you were laughing?
 
Then you recall how long it's been since you
 
connected with Him
 
Then an answer so swift and truth so sweet and a longing so strong

snuffs out the melancholy
 
drizzle
 
of forgetting
 
if even for an hour
 
what it's like to be with Him.....
 
 
I had that kind of moment today. So I wrote Him a letter......and, upon the tablet of my heart, through knee-mail...I felt His answer scripting across my soul....
 
Maybe it will minister to you, but mostly, I hope it causes your spirit heart to take pause, and the lungs of your soul to breathe deeply
 
of Him
 
and live again
 
in His presence
 
in unbroken communion.
 
I'll post the poem here:

Dear King
by Cheryl Wyatt October 15, 2007


Dear King,

It was bloody and brutal
and I cannot
imagine
you having to
die
without honor
so willingly.

 .      .        .       .      .

Dear Princess,

I was humbled and honored
and I could not
imagine
me having to
live
without you
for eternity.
