No New Normal

This pic goes back a few years, but it is one of my faves.
We were goofing off in the back yard around our firepit,
being silly while my mom snapped a few pics.
We are a bit dysfunctional
in our own functional way
certainly we have our flaws
yet our hearts we won’t betray
learning the ropes as we go
come what will, come what may
and in the end will it matter
what other people say?
We parent graciously-
mistakes we have made
tightly woven, still are we
this little family of three
No new normal
not for us
though we are not perfect
somehow we trust
that God will finish what he began
for when we think we cannot
He certainly can.
I wrote this for an impromptu Family prompt over at Christian Creative Writers.
It’s Tuesday, the day I serve up some poetic justice…kinda!
