"FOR WHERE YOUR TREASUER IS, THERE WILL YOUR HEART BE ALSO." LUKE 12:34
Silent Deep in his new dorm room standing tall. Smiling. I study his face and wonder if this is what he has been waiting for his whole life. That one...always in a bit of a rush to get on with it. How many lists did I find in his bedroom over these years so very gone? All the dreams he was dreaming then, and the written schedules to accomplish them. Did he just open his eyes to them come true? And how does it feel now that he's living it?
I watch him walking with his sister, and I can't help it. This vivid picture of the two of them crowded together in that little plastic car, his arm thrown around her shoulder, crowds my mind. Makes me a bit melancholy. A little sad as I think about all the legos washed out of his pants. Remembering all the rocks, matchbox cars, marbles and the big dreaming life of that one brown eyed boy that came out in the wash. All those objects lying at the bottom of the machine even after I had checked his pockets would leave me shaking my head. "Where does he keep all these treasures?" And I wonder now...
"Son. Where are your treasures?"
Just a little whisper-prayer as we leave him now to his life. Something I contemplate all the way home. Not crying. (Way to go, Mom!) But lost in all these precious thoughts toward him. These silent, deep thoughts of my son.
