It was cold today
(as it has been)
a bunch of us walked around,
stopping by fires a few times
stopping by ice
beforehand, at my house, my friend told me
she might move away
pretty far, to a place that sounds pretty beautiful to me
i said that i would visit her
she said something about being a little worried
like, what if part of God’s plan for her is here
and if she moves away she’ll miss it?
and i said something about how He knows
His plan for her
and that she should pray about it, of course,
and do what she thinks is right
but that He knows, He knows His plans for her
and He will work it out
then we went to dinner
and walking around in the cold
in that beautiful group of
stopping by mounds of ice,
cut and chiseled and fired into
and afterwards, back at home, i heard that another person – the second one this week! –
is doing a thing that i have been thinking – dreaming? – about doing
is it so easy for them? am i behind?
what if they become so successful and i … do not?
but He knows doesn’t He?
the plans, the dreams, He knows what we need.
i told my friend not to worry, that He will work it out.
so i will try to trust that for myself.
friends, trust that for yourself.
He knows, He knows,
dreams, hopes, our future adventures.
and that sometimes we just need
to go to dinner
in a beautiful group
to look at ice
