that flame...

i grabbed two books and cuddled in.
ahhhhhh......i had promised myself this if i got
a certain amount of work done.


a bowl of popcorn, some cuddly blankets,
i was ready.

one book is a spiritual book.
one book is a welding book.

i started with the spiritual book.
tryin' to overlook wording that bugged me,
i kept on.
'she doesn't necessarily mean it that way, terri.
it can be taken broader.'
and i kept tryin' with that outlook.

pretty soon i was tired of trying.
she started tellin' me what i needed to do to
be spiritual.

feelin' grouchier and grouchier that someone was
explaining god to me, i tossed the book aside.

picking up the welding book, i snuggled back in.
'god's in that welding flame,' i thought.
i know it. i felt it.

i got lost in reading about the safety of torches.

i have a feeling welding is gonna be one heck of
a spiritual experience...

I absolutely love your ability to see God in every day ordinary things. Well maybe a welding torch isn't ordinary but you know what I mean. I think this is what God must want us to do - see His/Her hand in everything we come across.
