Thanksgiving Drabbles - The Refugees' Return

It's so much easier to stay than to leave. Perhaps we should admire the ones who go, who try, who exit their comfort zone to find something better.


24. Rebuilding the Walls

“Shall we stay? Shall we go?”

The king had decreed that the people could go home. But where was home? “We have our lives here, houses, families, friends…Shall we stay? Shall we go?”

The king had decreed that they could rebuild the temple to their God. The rocks would rise as walls again. The altar would stand. The sacrifice would be offered and they would be blessed.

“Shall we stay? Shall we go?”

And the priest decreed that they should live in tents and keep the festival; remember the past, because the Lord was their future and their home.

Thank you God that you mend what is broken

 and restore what is taken away.
