Sussanah Wesley's Apron

            Susannah Wesley’s Apron

      No pilgrimage to Israel;
      No cloistered cell;
      No holy retreat.
      Not with ten tumbling children
      rumbling through the house.

      Despite the chaos and noise,
      the never-ending grind of 
      making ends meet,
      the demands of Motherhood. 
      She made time to talk with God.

      Under her own ‘Temple of Meeting’
      fashioned from her simple apron
      draped over her head, she prayed.
      In that holy place, like Moses in the desert,
      She met with God.

Rena, in my neighborhood in Chicago, there are dozens of mothers with 8 - 12 children, who somehow find a way to their 'tent' to pray to G-d during their incredibly busy, pressure-packed days. Susannah Wesley is not alone! Your poem is a marvelous tribute to all these women. Truly enjoyed this uplifting write. Blessing and Bounty, Gershon
