The Old Stone Door
This door seems too narrow, with no way to lock, a wedge pushing it always open.
The stone is so old with odd colored splotches, green moss growing all over it’s face.
This can’t be the way, no look at the door. It looks to small to be used as was spoken.
This is the garden, I know that for sure with tales of peace and beauty of this place.
But many remember a time of no peace, with shouts of anger and shedding of blood
With torches ablaze and sharp swords flying, an ear was taken, but now back as new
“Put away your sword”, he said firmly in love as they struggled standing in dark wet mud
Shall I not drink this cup the Father has given me? A cup allowing for of all things new!
Now, centuries later the garden lays quiet with forgotten memories of that time gone by
I walk through the beauty of flowers and trees and feel the reality this has had on me
Will I feel His love when I walk away from here, the beauty of flower and bright blue sky
Will I be able to use the love I feel, and bring it as proof, an everlasting love for all to see.
There are times when fellow bloggers post a picture that is so inspiring that I ask permission to try to write a post worthy of its beauty. Today, Ken of tallulahbass created a post for Norm for the Thursday doors and posted this door. I thought it was a beautiful door and thought of the Garden of Gethsemane wondering what it would be like today to walk through that garden.
As we remember the everlasting love he has for us, let us remember to share that love with a loving smile, maybe a gentle touch for a hurting soul or a helping hand for those in need. And always remember to be Kind.
