Sparks Fly

This morning

There were sparks

In my oven.

I’d made muffins

And was going to put in

A second pan

When I noticed

The light show.

It looked like

A little tiny person

Was playing with

A sparkler.

No flames

Just a white hot glow

And miniature fireworks.

I thought it best

To turn it off.

To be extra safe

I called my hubby

An expert in this area.

And yes

It’s the element.

Not just the remnants of

An overflow.

Sorry folks

No homemade oatmeal muffins.

Not today anyway.

A trip to the hardware store.

A few minutes in the kitchen.

And voila

It’ll be fixed.

Would that things were

So easy

When sparks fly

Between people.

When my kids

Were young

I had a nasty temper.

I was often

Hurtful and very vocal.

These days

I have wonderful relationships

With my three, now grown.

Sparks virtually never fly.

Can I take credit?

Absolutely not!

It is a very real testament to

God amazing grace.

Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ (John 1:16-17 NIV).
