i have never set foot inside unfaithful.
but i have leaned toward.
i let words, attention, near…mean more to me than i had right to.
i let my back face M while looking at another wondering if…
if this would be better.
if this would be easier.
if this would make up for.
if this would be my deserve.
if this would fill to brim.
(thinking to-the-brim was how contentment got dressed for the day.)
but when i leaned toward what looked like filling up—-contentment spilled out.
by gardners hand. drip system filling.
rooted in upright.
following choose to stand where planted. trusting in seasons of dormant, seasons of steady grow, seasons of bright bloom.
trust in the lord with all your heart
and do not lean on your own understanding.
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.
proverbs 3.5-6 (NASB)
