The Camel's Back
The camel's back is almost broken, I haven't gotten to the last straw , but the bundle in my hand is thinning out, and the load the camel is carrying is growing. It's been a hard fought year, one with many stresses and trials--strong tension threaded through all the days of this year. And, yet, I find refuge through it all, in the loving arms of my God and Savior. Is my anxiety gone-no, are my tears vanquished-no, do my fears linger-yes, do I still grapple with anger and resentment-yes. But, now I have a strength to help me hold on, to muddle through this cat's cradle web of life.
