Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil.
For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!
(Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 ESV)
Dogwood in bloom, Spring 2012, in our front yard
God uses our presence, our friendships and our words and prayers to lift one another up. One of the great encouragements of being a blogger is meeting others who walk the same path. We cheer one another on and share space to encourage, comfort and challenge one another.
Dawn Paoletta, a modern day disciple, as she calls herself, is one of those friends. She loves to share the power of words through journaling, blogging, and poetry. Today, she has graciously agreed to link up her newest Spring poem, which I also see as a vulnerable prayer:
Spring Desire by Dawn Paoletta
I find myself longing for something new.
Not that I am discontent.
I am not.
I have peace.
Yet I feel a longing within,
for that stirs up
Is there a fresh wind blowing?
