Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

Simplicity, Part 3

April 15, 2012

This was a benediction for my friend Jen’s worship service this morning on the theme of simplicity. 

the best things in life are not free
you have to hang on to them
carry them around
pack them in boxes
write checks to the storage garage
the best things in life
are a lot of work and expense

but the other, lesser things in life–
you gotta let them go
which is even more work
but even more rewarding
for freed from this prison
of our own making
we can look around
and breathe
and live
