Cricket in the House

Written By: Scot Butwell - Oct• 30•16

“Please come in and find the cricket…”

Jesus, I prayed, why does she have to worry about some dumb cricket.

Just let the cricket be, wherever it might be, this was my first thought.

Honestly, does the whereabouts of a cricket in the house really matter?

If a cricket enters the house and no one hears it, does it make a sound?

I actually thought that.

No, it takes a human ear to hear it.

A human with a sensitive ear.

Am I going to be able to find a cricket hiding in a crevice of the house?

Yet, I prayed, not my will be done, Lord, but your will be done.

Let me see this Lord, from my L’s perspective, and not my own.

Let D and me find this cricket and restore peace back to our family.

(L and I had an argument in the morning over something I can’t remember: a typical argument.)

Let D and I enjoy this time, even searching the house for a cricket.
