sitting next to my mum in church as a child in ukarumpa. the smooth hard benches in the meeting house, always cool to the touch.
coloring. thumbing through worn songbooks. my heart spoken to—-my mouth filled with sweet.
thank yous have no need of “would you like…”
offer. let someone savor the sweet of them.
in everything give thanks; for this is god’s will for you in christ jesus.
1 thessalonians 5:18(NASB)
