The Simple Life

Never As It Seems


We sat watching them

Laughing together

Entertaining the little ones

What a beautiful family

========

What a joy for engaged parents

What a beauty of happy children

Out in the world have a blast

Making all of us watch

========

She walked up to them smiling

Joining in the laughing and playing

Dusting off the children

And walked off smiling

========

Bye bye uncle

Bye bye auntie

See you lovelies

Love you

========

Wait a minute…

That wasn’t a family?

Those weren’t their children?

Oh Wow!!!

=======

It is never as it seems

========

How many other things had we assumed?

How many others had we judged?

How many hasty judgments have we made?

It is never as it seems

========

The outward appearance is unreal

The gloss can deceive

The fascade breaks eventually

It is never as it seems

========

How do we know the truth?

How do we understand the realities?

How do we know what holds?

It is never as it seems

========

We pursue the heart of God

We pursue the clarity  of the Spirit

We pursue the depth of Christ

It becomes as it seems

========

Shalom
