This little light of mine

Wednesday, April 11, 2018

Though their resting place is far
The stars pierce into the empty black
Guiding the moon into its place and the sun to rest
He dusted the stars into the void with only a breath
And though he could have emptied the world of all darkness
He chose instead to tolerate the shadow cast, and allowed it to remain
Maybe it's because without the dark we could not understand the light
Maybe it's to show us we always have the freedom to choose - for what is now darkness was once light, the most beautiful and bright, yet to be the most was not enough

That's what darkness does - it sucks the light out, it casts shadows over what is good and makes the most not enough
It lies and undermines the creator
It tricks and twists and steals the joy of enough away

Though the darkness remains, it will not always
But the light will always, was always and is always
It never fades or changes:
When we struggle to see, it's there
When we can't feel it's warm it is from within that it warms

So dance the sun down and thrive in the light of the stars
Watch the light remain, be restored in its glow
See clearly that the creator made you with the same star breath, Hear how deeply He loves you and Feel the warmth of His light
He calls you good and your enough is exactly what He meant for it to be
Shine for all to see because in you is His light and the darkness can not stand against the eternity within you

Human Condition

Tuesday, April 3, 2018

Life is fleeting
Roads merge and traveling happens together
Hearts bleeding
Pain is a part of the travel
We affect each other, our choices, our words, footsteps and stories

Life matters
We give and love and selfishly take, We learn
Feet move
Every move has worth
Value is not assigned through accomplishment instead through valuing every attempt

Life unravels
The thread gets tangled and worn
Minds wander
Joy wells up as we entangle
Memories captured as if looking through the still frame of a lens

Life ends
The road continues on
Souls breathe
Pain is no more, Feet dance, Worth is realized, Minds opened, Joy is made complete and every attempt celebrated
Life is fleeting it is also eternal

For all those whose footsteps have ceased, 
but whose stories have eternally merged with mine.
May we meet again
