The Teacher

The task waited,

And waited,

And waited,

And finally I was staring at the calendar . . .


It was time to act.

Actually, it was weeks beyond that,

But finally I was forced to do so.

Why did I listen to the wrong voice?

It is done.

It was simple.

He told me so, I’m sure,

Yet I was distracted by foolishness

Loud enough to drown out

His voice.

His love and patience . . .

Beyond measure.


Another lesson learned.

    Instructive. Thank you Martha. I presume “His voice” is the voice of Jesus Christ? Yes we must always listen to the Lord.
