day 140

Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Jeshanah, and named it Ebenezer; for he said, "Thus far the LORD has helped us."  1 Samuel 7:12

the faded picture
      of the mentor
   who helped us find
   the path through
            life's brambles;
the marker in the garden
      for the ashes
      of the dog
   who never left our side
   during her best friend's
            cancer;
the wearing down
      of wedding rings
   while the love
   grows ever stronger,

ebenezers
are all around us.
