There are people trying to be satisfied with “cheap religion.” (Are you one of them?) They are like being aware in the night that you don’t have enough covers but being too lazy to get up and put on another blanket. “Like” (I typed above) but sadly so dissimilar: you’ll make it, though uncomfortably, till morning light – they will not make it. Period. They will end up where there is no light – – – and where there’s “…weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Mat 8.12).

Dreams

Nearly every night – early morn, probably – I dream. Sometimes you, a SM (social media) Friend, are included and upon awakening I mention you to my Father in prayer. Seldom do my exotic, sleep-escapades make sense; there’re people I know and those I don’t, mixed in situations un-lifelike, often incredulous and sometimes funny (I’ve awakened myself more than once laughing). The most sense that I can make of these “adventures” is to pray briefly for you who cross the corner of my dream, if dreams have a corner.

Look closely and you’ll find it there

Some grown men have a rip, a tear;

Not a planned line with a surgeon’s knife

Nor an unplanned slice by his hunting knife

But a tear jagged and a bit rough

Also unplanned – “sure enough.”

Looking involves more than mere skin

Some of the worst tears are within;

Like the huge tear in his little heart

When Dad and Mom’s marriage “fell” apart

They (the closest kin) separated – sad result.

And sadder for him – he imagined it his fault.
