What can come from waiting?

What can come from waiting?

An invitation for what I fear most to creep toward and overtake me?

A “chilled-to-the-soul” wind blows. . .

A darkness slowly snakes over the horizon to swallow the depths of me.

Even friendly clouds scheme and turn Hyde, morphing, covering beauty to which I cling.

I want to run – to get away;

Practicality begs me to give into reason – escape . . .

 

But what can come from waiting?

 

A deeper Voice invites me to stay . . .

a dawning breaks forth as I welcome what I perceived as sunset;

Light wakes me up inside as She begins Her dance

— quietly, gracefully, inspiritingly.

She moves in rhythm with all creation — light and darkness;

a new knowing is birthed . . .

Waiting . . .

Hidden Mountains

South Carolina Sunset

 

 

 

 

Light – beautifully, gently – reaches out to kiss creation

 

Illuminating the hidden mountains we climb…

 

 

 

Never to judge…

 

Never to belittle…

 

 

 

But to help us know…

 

we do not climb alone;

 

to help us see…

 

the Light that is greater than the looming peaks;

 

to help us feel…

 

 the Life-Light* dancing in the darkness…

 

a darkness that cannot contain the Life-Light* within.

(*Life-Light: a phrase used by Eugene Peterson in “The Message”)





Silhouette Mountain

longing to be lost in the hues of life…

to be a silhouette – defined by unfathomable Light…

lost in the glow of Hope and Mystery…

a part of creation being celebrated by the Creator…





Soul’s Desire…
