The Refrigerator Door
by Mark Bishop

Album: A Different Light


At seven she knew the Golden Rule.
She memorized it at her Sunday School.
Her grandparents took her every week.
Her mom and dad, right now they don't speak. She ran through the door, with something
they'd made.
Glitter and glue and a smile on her face.
Her mommy was proud, and just like before,
she put her masterpiece on the refrigerator door.
Cotton ball sheep; an old wooden cross made of Popsicle sticks reaching out to the lost.
Coloring pages cut out of a book. Crayola Red for the life that they took. Hanging right there, plain as could be, salvation's story so rich and so free.
Her mom didn't need that stuff anymore. Oh but just in case, there's a picture of grace on the refrigerator door.
Now it's never easy to parent alone.
One stormy night he didn't come home.
She wondered how things could be where they are.
She sat in the kitchen alone in the dark.
She whispered a prayer; she gave up the fight. The answer was there in the pale moonlight.
Cotton ball sheep, an old wooden cross made of Popsicle sticks reaching out to the lost.
Coloring pages cut out of a book. Crayola Red for the life that they took. Hanging right there, plain as could be, salvation's story so rich and so free.
It never touched her like this before, with tears on her face, she found grace on the refrigerator door.
Daughters grow up; they move away. They start a family and maybe some day, life takes a turn and she's full of doubt; she'll come home to figure things out.
A fresh cup of coffee; a moment of grace, down from the attic and back into place...
Lovingly placed as they were before, all of the answers were right there on the refrigerator door.
Cotton ball sheep, an old wooden cross
made of Popsicle sticks reaching out to the lost. Coloring pages cut out of a book.
Crayola Red for the life that they took.
Hanging right there, plain as could be, salvation's story so rich and so free.
For all of the things that life has in store,
and when everything's wrong, He was there all along on the refrigerator door.
Thank God for grace, glitter and paste
on the refrigerator door.
