IF...(for Doug Huskey)


If you watched him stand up and walk to the pulpit today, you’d never know.

If you lingered and listened to him sing “The Anchor Holds” like a lullaby, you’d never know.

If you sat with rapt attention while he waved about reaching out, you’d never know

that a few years back, he fell off a roof, cracking his world open.

A few years back, he lay in bed with long suffering. Light, constantly shifted about him.

A few years back, a symphony of prayers, visible love and invisible sentinels.

If you’d been in the service today to taste the Easter message, you’d never know

this secondary miracle.
