Marcia is a pastor's wife, mother of three and a freelance writer. She has written a devotional column, The Spur (Hebrews 10:24) for over 10 years and has just launched her new devotional book, The Spur of the Moment. More of Marcia's work can be seen at www.vinemarc.com


Our worlds are never fatherless
though we try to cut them
out with thin-edged blades as
from a photograph,
exclude them,
refuse them life even in
our minds
they are still there
negative space
between, around
every one.

Never fatherless
our eyes forever seek the edges
of the holes they leave
seek the depth of that darkness
our shape.
