:to twine about one another

:to become mutually involved

Intertwined between IV lines, NG tubes and Oxygen hoses

There is a man whose life is dependent on

being mutually involved

Not only do the lines, tubes and hoses give life

The recipient must accept such life giving efforts

When a gift is given it is not just the effort of the giver

but also of the receiver

The receiver must reach out and accept the offered gift

As hours and days have turned to weeks and nearly a month

I have watched a life become intertwined

into this life saving effort
Every ounce of energy is spent

being mutually involved

This time has also afforded me the ability to

look at my own life lines

The spiritual ones

Realizing that I am not fully connected

to the giving and receiving of life

has helped me to see why I am so exhausted

I have become so busy 'doing'

all that is required of me

That I have somehow failed

to stay attached

and remain mutually involved

with God.

Yes, I have clung to His Word

Yes, I believe and have Faith

that Mark will be ok

Still and yet, I have found it difficult to pray

Words escape me into an

entanglement of thoughts and

Thoughts fade into a horizon of fog

My spiritual life lines must be

prayer, God's Word, and His voice

To lose even one of these is death

Today, I stop and allow reconnection

to take place

Reaching out to receive

all that God is holding before me

Today I again become

Mutually Involved

In the Giving and Receiving of Life

My prayer for you is that you too

will become mutually involved

In the giving and receiving

of the life God so preciously desires you to have

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, any you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30

Considering Being Mutually Involved,

  1. You have an awesome way of putting things into words. I admire that in you. I am happy to see what you are learning through all of this and want you to know that you are in my thoughts andd prayers. I too need to be fully intertwined. Thank you sweet friend for ministering to me during this time in your life.

    Love you, Connie
