Hearts on Fire
Sunrise in Tennessee is still a little chilly, so we set a fire going first thing this morning. Some old pecan wood piled loosely in a pit and doused in gasoline.
‘Pfwoomph’. It’s a cool sound as the flames slide and lick up, over and around the wood. There is something inherently pleasing about staring in to a fire. It’s ancient. Fire gives life. It uses the very thing essential to our life on this planet yet gives back more…light and heat, two energies we really need. Of all the elements, fire is the most popular in songwriting and its used literally and, more commonly as a symbol for love, unrequieted or something a little more provocative.
Tonight I watch the glowing embers, reflect on God’s good grace and thank Him that we can do it all over again tomorrow.
Good night Art Lovers!
