by Angela Hoffman
In these soul-weary every-days that are all the same now I forget to notice the invisible landscape of life. How the pea shoots that I started as seeds turn their lanky bodies bow their heads to the windows, declare The spirit in me sees the spirit in you. Almost hourly, I turn the tray and they bow again to the sun. What instructions did He put within you that you know to look for the light and lean in? What has He engraved on my heart then if even the peas know?
