sarah’s tent

sarah’s tent

from Genesis 24, “Then the servant told Isaac all he had done. 67 Isaac brought her into the tent of his mother Sarah, and he married Rebekah. So she became his wife, and he loved her; and Isaac was comforted after his mother’s death.”

in sarah’s home, a palace of

rich fabrics, soft fabrics, generous

loving and painful moments, where

her child, her one & only child – Issac, was

conceived in faith, within

her old age, & with,

with Abraham’s broken,

ruined

body,

it is her tent, within

after hearing of the coming promise

she laughs inwardly at the Lord God’s promise, yet, after

hearing,

she invites

her husband to leave his tent once more, once again, to

enter hers,

sarah’s tent is all she has to

give

a son, her laugh, her poem, sarah loves Issac; her tent, home

she leaves him this, her

tent, her beauty, her life

when Issac 40 weds Rebekah, it is here & sarah, though

passed,

blesses him, her, them with

faith, a covering, a

tent

her tent
