Fly By

Destinations

Destinations

Not every destination point in life
is always for our attainment.
Some, we simply fly by, witnessing them from
a distance.
These goals had set our flight course, without them
our route would have been very different.

I was thinking about “missed goals” when I wrote this. We may not always understand why something evolved in our lives and came to fruition and why it did not. I pictured these missed goals as destination points in the flight of our lives.
Sometimes, we end up flying past a goal to a new destination. That does not mean we failed and the goal did not serve a purpose. The goal set the course for our flight, and there is a gift in that.

Crumble

Budding

Budding


Hold “It” tight.
The “It” does not matter.
Make it a death grip.
Clutch the life out of it…
and then let it fall and crumble.
You are still you.

—-
I think sometimes we hold on to things so tightly- a certain image, expectation or whatever. When we release our grip and the object crumbles, we realize we are now free.

Longings

Somehow I find You

Somehow I find You

All prayers, no matter the language,
are the sacred longings of the God within you seeking voice and expression.
The act of praying is more to grab your attention than it is to grab God’s.
