With hope, I seek an horizon in the darkness…showered with stars. (Quite literally. I witnessed MANY shooting stars this morning. Took my breath away and filled me with WONDER!)
With the chill (numbing freeze) blowing in seemingly all directions, I seek a firm place to stand, and…wait with anticipation.
Yes the winds of life can disrupt the senses and redecorate your surroundings…with…color?!?!
With the COLD wind in my face, I watch as the waters of life are transformed, all while the horizon is revealed…and maybe…not yet.
Yes, I am grateful for layers of protection…love, hope, peace, joy…you know the song.
Then, like the face of a new born, (one born before time was counted), a game of “peek-a-boo” is played with the eternal.
During the “game”, glimpses…revealings of grandeur are briefly uncovered…then, seemingly, disappear.
During the, oh so chilling, game of hide and seek with the eternal, I notice that the waters of life are forming a chilling crust upon the surface. Growing ever so slowly.
And my attention is caught by the silent beauty close at hand.
The trail ahead, leads beside the now, frozen waters, into a world illumined with promise.
Where will the trail of life lead? Will the waters flow again? Will I regain feeling to my face? Will the smile on my face, ever thaw? The spirit with in me, warms me with joy, that reaches…
…higher and into new adventures and new surroundings, yet still familiar.
During this season of change, stay rooted, rise, and reflect as much light as your body allows.
Observe as new neighbors bring an excitement…
…a renewed joy…
…a new glimmer in the eye…
…and a sense of awe that fills the soul.
So, I take in the surroundings…the ancient, colorful, changing, promised and…
…all its majesty.
All while my eyes are drawn upwards with awe and gratitude.
Thank you, Spirit.
Now, together, let us continue along the path of adventure and…
…life, life abundant.
