Standing in Line

I watch the faces

on the street.


The aftermath

of what has been


at us daily.


Numb to

the overgrown




meant to



Trust issues


leave us tossing

in our beds at night.


Standing in line

praying for salvation

in the power

of our convictions.

      1. The process of voting by mail in Minnesota proved easy. So Randy and I applied for our mail-in ballots and voted that way. Our daughter, who once worked for the MN Secretary of State’s office, convinced us to vote via mail. She didn’t want us risking COVID exposure and she wanted to make sure we had voted (because what if you’re sick on Election Day, Mom and Dad?). Smart daughter. I’m sorry the process in Texas is difficult. But I’m so thankful you voted.
