I read something beautiful today.
From the site www.aholyexperience.com
"I used to fly; I remember this.
How to unfold winged hope
and enfold the wind
in free falling trust."
"I remember thinking the sky
all empty space.
This can make a sparrow brave."
"I remember thinking that the wind
and faith were enough.
How did I forget?"
"How is it possible-
that fear can make you forget
how to fly?"
"How do you remember joy
when some life sliver
pierces through your wild pulse?"
"How does a small sparrow in a wide world
extend the brief span of her wings
and let go...
to climb higher."
Wished I would have written that.
I love it...
It speaks to me today.
Sometimes in the midst of earthly troubles
I forget the joy I once knew...
I focus on the circumstances of life...
Instead of the wonder of God.
She goes on to say,
that the world's not meant to be a mirror,
where I focus on myself.
Instead it's a clear pane of glass,
that we look through
to see God high and lifted up.
How did I forget how to fly?
