15 minutes of fame. What does the sixteenth minute hold?
One day of birthday. What does October 8 hold?
I dreaded something special because I feared what the aftermath would entail.
It reminded me of something I wrote in my journal a couple nights ago:
Why do we call friends when we know we'll have to hang up?Yes. Perhaps it is.
Why do we visit when we know we'll have to say goodbye?
Why do we make new friends when we know it leads to more farewells?
Why do we embrace when we know we'll have to let go?
Isn't it all sort of self-defeating?
|Fellow Oct 7 baby, Kesly (she's on the left)|
Calling and hanging up, hellos and goodbyes, friends and farewells. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain [or goodbyes or hang ups or farewells]. Rev 21:4
That's a reactionless action I'm looking forward to.
Postscript: October 8 dawned bright and sunny, with a heavy downpour of blessings for Jessica Mae. The sixteenth minute is almost better than the first fifteen. Thank You, Waitress, Life Preserver, and Time Keeper.
