The Front Door

Lily Among Thorns Song of Solomon 2:2 In the Last Days 2nd Peter 3:3

Shape Up and Fly Right, Chapter 2, Page 55

Suddenly the whole house was in an uproar by the horrendous pounding taking place at the front door. Ouickly getting myself out of bed. I put my robe on over my jammies, and the very first thing that came to mind was what transpired at church the day before. But in the hopes my first inclination was wrong, I still thought it best to keep  these details to myself and I came out into the hallway to join the others.

Author’s Commentary

The days come and go and Lily cannot count the days it was a welcoming sight to see the front door of her family home. A delightfully holiday wreath is carefully placed on the front door to reflect the warmth inside, and with joyful anticipation she open’s the front door to warm family greetings.

On the days of inclement weather, or perhaps inclement company. The natural occurrence of placing her hand onto the doorknob of the front door blessed Lily’s heart, knowing what awaited her inside was heartfelt wishes of  comfort and contentment.

Come bedtime, when the family is tuck safely beneath their bedclothes. Only one remains up, the man of the house. Lily’s dad, who rechecks all the entree doors to make sure once more the second time around all is safe and secure. Only then can he rest easy reassured his family can sleep well for another night within the sanctuary of their home. 

The trustworthy home life Lily had taken as a given growing up, is far from safe in the present day alarming world ever encroaching to gain access beyond what once was her family home’s sentinel, “The Front Door”.
