Is this your invitation

to stand with you and weep,

we who were so busy have been paused,


all we can do is weep,

we cannot stand with those we love and serve,

we cannot hold their hands,

or soothe their brows

or even offer tea and sympathy….

and so we weep,

we weep for what is lost,

for those who are lost and losing

losing hope and loved ones,

we weep, feeling the burden of it

unable to lift it

except in prayer and salt sharp tears,

with groans that grind our souls,

joining the groans of all creation,

hurting, grieving…

weeping, seeking,

hoping, holding out love,

for hope…


what hope?

this too shall pass, but what cost,

and who pays?


and so we stand

inside the tomb and weep,

and wait to be called out to life…

oh come, oh come, unbind us….


what will we look like loosed?

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
