RevGals Friday Five - Word Association

From RevGalBlogPals:

Friday Five: Word Association

Below you will find five words. Tell us the first thing you think of on reading each one. Your response might be simply another word, or it might be a sentence, a poem or a story.

whirlwind

foundation

lightning

den

prey

(Yes, they're all from Job 38.)




WHIRLWIND
lost inside i turn and twist
Lord God can there be more than this?
FOUNDATION
which way's up and which way's down?
"Lord, plant my feet on higher ground..."
LIGHTNING
don't zap me Lord, i know i sin
i'll make the same mistakes again
DEN
the lion seeks to shred my soul
and yet You keep me safe and whole
PREY
though evil still pursues his prey
i know You will protect my way

....I won't quit my day job, but somehow this required poetry...

from our home to yours...

Maybe the next RevGal book should be modern day Psalms!
