I Am From Pathways


Today I am linking up with the She Loves Magazine “I Am From” Synchroblog

I am from charging cords, from Legos, and stacks of Bibles.

I am from the clutter with pathways cut through.

I am from the parched grasses, the pecan tree whose long gone limbs I remember as if they were my own.

I’m from The Farming Game and quick wit, from Idella and Lenore.

I’m from creativity and rumination and long, drawn-out discussions.

I’m from preventing fires, and not being the boss of my brother, and wanting them to know we are Christians by our love.

I’m from summers in Massachusetts where I tried to forge pathways through muck.

I’m from Columbus, Ohio and from people whose waterways were first forged by the Mayflower, venison summer sausage and special carrots.

From a husband who saves turtles, a tireless servant of God, long letters tucked away that cut pathways for love to emerge.

  1. I love that first line: “I am from charging cords, from Legos, and stacks of Bibles.”

    Thank you so much for linking up, Jennifer!

  2. Beautiful. Thank you Jennifer.

  3. I recognised the ‘clutter with pathways cut through’ as familiar from my youth! I love the ways that different pathways emerge in this condensed biography. Lovely to know more about you!
