Word For The Day…

From:  Gratefulness.org

Art is not simply works of art; it is the spirit that knows beauty, that has music in its soul and the color of sunsets in its handkerchief, that can dance on a flaming world and make the world dance too.

Awakening: The Journey To

In Response To:

Word Of The Day Challenge – Awakening

It begins with a

rugged, uphill battle

a road paved with

spiritual scars

The scheduled Roman road that runs across the Pennine’s Blackstone Edge Moor, Yorkshire © Mark Moxon

unevenly paved cobblestones

these paths, not pretty,

not smooth, instead…

Wisdom building, 

beauty making pain that

leads to a precious gift

a down for the count surrender

and there, we are met by God

where He gathers our

spiritual scars

weaving them into an

embroidered tapestry of 

fulfillment through selflessness

that will shroud the downtrodden with

a Love that heals and conquers all!
