If Doors can Speak

If Doors can Speak

By Judi Chow

We use doors everyday without thinking about it.
We open the bedroom door and close the bathroom door.
We open the front door and close the car door.
We push through the reviving door and close the office door.
All doors are created with the purpose of opening and closing.
It serves as an entrance or exit from one space to another.
There are wooden doors, glass doors, paper doors, and steel doors.
Some doors can turn, fold, or slide, others have windows and locks.
A door was created to be use by some or by one.
An opened door could be a sign of welcome.
A closed door could mean privacy is needed.
A locked door can provide protection.
Here is a door, no knob, no lock, broken, neglected,
……but it is still a door, standing at its post,
……trying to do the job it was created to do,
……perhaps waiting for its master’s return.
If this door can speak, it could sound very human:
Why has this happened to me?
Why didn’t you protect me?
Why have you forsaken me?
“Woe to the one who quarrels with his Maker– An earthenware vessel among the vessels of earth! Will the clay say to the potter, ‘What are you doing?’ Or the thing you are making say, ‘He has no hands’? Isaiah 45:9

  1. Hi Judi. a thoughtful post. I’m fascinated by doors and you’re right. we’re ruled by doors particularly in the regions of each hemisphere where the weather, hot or cold, dominates our lives. I’m going to look out for a ‘reviving door’, could come in handy from time to time.
