Heartbreak Hotel

Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? …

See how the lilies of the field grow…

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness,

and all these things will be given to you as well.

Matthew 6:27,28 & 33

Heartbreak Hotel

**********************

I’ve come to realize

that this heartbreak hotel

is not my forever home

just briefly here I’ll dwell

~

These bones become brittle

a breaking down abode

riddled with ‘carpenter ants’

osteoarthritis of the old

~

Meanwhile there’s a mansion

being prepared yonder skies

so attachment to this room

is neither profitable nor wise

~

As my decor grows passe

all my service for the Lord

will be in vogue forever

as I’m ushered through death’s door.

Last week I experienced a taste of what’s to come…

my foot decided to crank up the pain level.

I have osteoarthritis that I manage without medication.

By living moderately I can deal with the aches and pains (usually) until last week.

Thankfully I have an attentive doctor who immediately sent me for tests.

So far we’ve discovered nothing about the foot;

however, we found out I’m deficient in iron.

That explains why I feel like I’m walking uphill all the time;

so, it wasn’t just aging after all.

Take care of yourselves, dear friends.

There’s no point getting to the finish line ahead of schedule.
