Even when we fail to feel the sun shining on our backs, it is still in the background trying to light our way and hoping to warm our lives. When tend to look to others for guidance when we have a heart that will happily show us the way. We look to the world for wisdom when our souls contain the knowledge of life.
When we feel despondent it’s good to remember all we really need is within our reach. We often think we need certain things, and are frustrated when we they seem to be out of our grasp. We don’t always know what is best for us. When things pass us by, there is usually something better for us waiting around the corner.
When we learn to be still, peace comes to us.
When we learn to be quiet, we listen.
When we listen, we will hear that voice within speak to us.
When we trust ourselves, we find freedom.
When we are free, there’s nothing we can’t accomplish.
Remember whether we see the sun or not, it is always there.
Living in the Gap
March 28, 2012 – Yoyo Temperatures
Pools of water stick to each broad spring-green leaf. Like quartz studs they catch glimmers of sunlight and sparkle in the air as the fierce March winds wave the lilies about. Stems pull their leaves in like cloaks of warmth as they gravitate toward the sun…but the lilies are in on the secret. They know the cold temperature is a trick of nature and the sun will soon stop playing hide and seek and be out to stay for a while.
