RELINQUISHMENT

Now all the spices
I have accumulated
through the years,
and which my daughters
don’t want
will be given up.
I know the ones in rusted cans will go.
But the ones in glass jars?
Surely someone could use them.
Of course they’re over five years old.
That’s how long we’ve been here
with little cooking since.
I think I’ll try the bottled ones
on our give away shelf
and see if anyone wants them.
Lord, it’s hard to let go.
Help me to do it.  Amen.

Philippians 4:13-14
I can do all things through him who strengthens me.  In any case, it was kind of you to share my distress.
