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
the wearing down
      of wedding rings
   while the love
   grows ever stronger,

are all around us.
