MAY I CHECK YOUR BAGS?


Everyone has a set stashed away in a dusty closet:

a lightweight overnighter,

fitted with doubts, unanswered questions,

cryptic comments —

perfect for ruining a peaceful day.

a suitcase

packed with unresolved anger, jealousy,

and guilt

ideal for fouling a friendship.

a steamer trunk

stuffed with lies, secrets, and rumors

souvenirs from scenic tours through Hell,

guaranteed to destroy a marriage begun in Heaven.

But when the luggage

on our hearts

and in our souls

becomes too heavy to carry,

we can bow our heads

and bend our knees

and You lighten our load.
