"When a dragonfly lands on you, you will hear excellent news from someone far away from home. A dead dragonfly symbolizes sad news."
Yesterday I received sad news.
Today on my porch I found a dead dragonfly.
From time to time I have been given the pleasure of a live dragonfly flying near... it always made me feel hopeful.
The sad (or discouraging) news came from a dear loved one...
one who has been far from home in spirit... far from God.
The dragonfly only seems to confirm my loss of hope or encouragement.
It seems to tell me, 'this is the way things are, this is the way they will always be'.
"to try and persuade or encourage one who did not respond was 'putting a poultice on a wooden leg'."
(from Lark Rise to Candleford)
However, I'm still holding out faith in prayer...
so if my dear Xanga friends will pray for my two 'lost' children, and all the other young adults who are losing their way in this day and age...
and when they choose to remain lost?
I did not teach my children enough scripture...
heck I did not teach them scripture, only Bible stories...
should have taught them God's Word so that it would live in them.
What do you do,
when nothing you do,
when you can't decipher what's up, and what's down?
when you don't know,
is it best to speak, or stay silent?
to just say sorry, or to confront?
to accept, or disbelieve?
did what I did help, or hurt, or nothing at all?
and what would help?
what would do something to light a flame, to ignite a change?
or is this just the way it is to be...
there was a time when what I did had effect
when what I did mattered
a time when I knew,
what to do,
without question... (or at least little question)
what do you do when the thread is broken?
the heart no longer reachable...
~ I pour out my heart ~
My mown down hopes, my fly away dreams.
