Is it time yet?




I long to be with you.
Is it time yet?
I long to be reunited with my family who are already in your house.
Is it time yet?
I long for a glorified new body to replace this body of weakness and pain.
Is it time yet?


I love you. I trust in you.
Your time is not my time.
You are not slow; you are patient.
I know that.
But Lord,
I am so tired.
Isn’t it time yet?

    Prayers and hugs for you. This is so beautiful.
    God walks with us through that “shadow of death” just as He did before cancer through the green pastures and still waters.
    When the time is right, our Lord will take you home where you shall dwell in His house forever.
    God bless you and fill you with His peace.

    • Knot Telling says:

      Elizabeth, gosh! You made me cry in a really good way. Thank you. I guess I never thought the valley of shadow of death would be so big and take so long to cross.

  7. She says:

    Trapped in this limited existance
    Many slowly make their way through the valley
    In exhaustion, not fear
    Each of us has to believe
    We are here in this life for the perfect tenure of time
    We are meant to be
    Not a moment too long, or a moment too soon
    How blessed we are to share the path with others
    Even if only for a fleeting moment
    All is, and shall be as it is meant to be
    Patience, strength and courage are our armour, a gift from He who calls us home in his time.

  9. Kathi says:

    Oh, my friend, I hate that you are suffering. Wish I could fix it. Sending love.

    • Knot Telling says:

      Thank you, Kathi. At least my suffering has a context. For so many people, it’s just pain in the void.

  10. LauraN says:

    Sending you love across the miles, peace across the sea and thankfulness from the heart. Your words are as powerful as your soul is strong. May the good Lord continue to fill your spirit with light and your mind with creativity and wit. Your road may seem long, but I’m sure there’s a reason behind it. Just look at how many of us you’ve touched with your grace!
    A huge loving hug, my dear.

  11. Dorry says:

    I love you Knot.
    I wish I could take it all away and make it all better.

  12. Knot Telling says:

    Oh, Dorry, my sweet. Thank you.

  13. Maxine D says:

    I read this last night Knots, but did not reply because I was in tears for you, and then praying.
    I praise God for the time I have been able to share your posts, they have been a blessing to me.

    {{{{{Hugs}}}}} and prayers and blessings – I just wish I could be there to assist you IRL, but my prayers are all I can give from this distance, and they are daily.


  14. AnneMarie says:

    I send you gentle hugs, all of the love that is filled within my heart for you and I hold you ever so close in my thoughts. This breaks my heart. I’m so sorry I can’t do more but I hope you feel the collective arms of this community wrapped around you.

    Much LOVE,

    • Knot Telling says:

      I do feel the collective embrace, AnneMarie. Thank you so much for your comment and your support.

  15. Stephanie says:

    Thy will, not mine, be done.

    A God who challenges me with suffering challenges my faith in divine goodness.

    So, I pray for God’s grace to sustain me in this life and into the next.

    Pray too for human love, support, allies to lift me when I can’t lift myself.

    Knots, you are in my loving, healing prayers.

    May your time in your body of weakness and pain be short. And may you be eased by the love you receive. May the Lord’s grace always be with you.

    Waves across the world,

  16. Gaby says:

    This poem, beautiful as it is, tells much more that it says.
    Sending you warm hugs and much love from this side of the world.
    How I wish we could talk in person, but I’m thankful for the opportunity I’ve been given.

  17. Mae says:

    Sending you love Knots and hoping you get some relief soon.

  18. Knot Telling says:

    Right back atcha!

  19. oh, my Dear One, how I wish I could take your suffering away. I keep you held close to my heart, always sending you warm and gentle hugs and a beautiful light to surround you with…

    so much love,
