A Lesson Learned

A restlessness,
A new life yearned,
A whispered lie,
A heart is turned,
A wayward child,
A Father spurned,
A shattered life,
A lesson learned.

A prodigal,
A bridge once burned,
A second chance,
A path returned,
A contrite heart,
A love discerned,
A life restored,
A lesson learned.

Luke 15 vs 11-32

And in a sense, we've each been him...or his older, self-righteous brother.
