Requiem for a Mismatched Pair of Socks


You insidious unpaired defiant wretches

Unaccustomed to the other

Patterns in heated dispute
Yet emerging as if wed
Once each of you were holy partnered
Right and left together properly bedded
Now here you lie 
Too unlike the other to become one
Destined to spend unnumbered days
Cast into the catchall grave 
Until another purpose unfolds
Hoping for a miraculous reunion
When the lost again is found

thanks Leann...

Each day brings its own challenges. But first and foremost, I've learned to start each day with God even before breakfast. I fast until I have my devotion time. Sometimes I get dressed first...depends on when I wake up. But I do not want to go through a day that hasn't begun with the Lord.
