Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Inspired by 2 Corinthians 7
I have a pocket in my heart
where I tuck sorrow,
worthless tin treasure
too weighty to discard.

I try to shift myself,
to turn toward mercy,
but those rough-cut edges
sting and slash me through.

I need someone to sit with me
and count it out,
to pocket the balance within
His own great heart.

Inspired by the Come, Follow Me readings for September 9-15
