Promising to pray

once seemed a small gesture--

The least I could do.

Now I know that praying

is shouldering my sister's backpack.

It is filled with heavy things

that will strain my soul.

Together, we will haul

this burden

to the throne

of God Who Heals,


he'll sort through it,

discarding and evaluating

and taking the weight

upon Himself.

We'll leave the holy of holies

weightless and guiltless.

We'll seek more

Pilgrims with bulging backpacks.

Marvelous sentiments, Bess; marvelous poem.

PS Read your Blog: Good Luck on your vacation destinations; I've made it to some of those places, but I, too, yearn to see Australia, before I'm too old to enjoy it!

Bess, I love your message here, particularly the selfless ending - a pledge to "seek more pilgrims with bulging backpacks." Wonderful poem!
