Promise that I am in this for the long haul, weathered and worn and still rising up to the skies.

And then…light breaks through, upon the solid promises and illumines the valley.  Shadows retreat.

With the light revealing the promises rising around me, I glance at the path and find more promise.  Promise of new life.

And, my oh my, I am filled with the same promises and the same light that is gifted to us, every day.  The Spirit is at work and my eyes are opened to beauty, divine.
