(a shadorma)

Why do I
insist on reeling
them back in
after I’ve
been told I can cast my cares
on the One who cares?

  1. I appreciate this simple but thought provoking piece. Paints a visual representation of the effort we expend going back and forth. I really wish I could paint.


    1. Thanks, Ash. The prompt was “casting” — and I didn’t have time to write anything right away. All day the verse from 1 Peter kept coming to mind. I’m glad you liked it. And…you CAN paint. I’ve seen it! 😉
