A Septet of Meditations VII

                 The Prodigal Father
                                  by Jim Rapp

No day passed that the father did not look;
did not grieve and wonder where his son
was sleeping; wonder when the wealth he took
would fail, and he would see him coming home.

No parable more clearly shows
the love of God for wayward souls;
nor offers clearer hope to those
who, spent, have nowhere else to go.
