Our Hopes and Dreams

20170628_132524

All of our hopes and dreams, the visions

we have for ourselves,

will only come to pass

if we press forward,

moving beyond

the ruins of our lives.

May your spirit be strengthened.

Amen.

Sand Dunes

20190719_145206

I was in my heart on a dry day, and the ocean wind would not satisfy, no matter how much I believed.

So I went through the dunes hunting. Hunting for a reason some people are healed…..

and why some only have the faith of a little bird, with small wings.

Still others are a tortoise shell, hiding their heart, protecting themselves at all costs.

I breathed, and I couldn’t help it, I couldn’t keep holding it all, so I let it all go……every heartache.

And finally I allowed myself……to embrace the wind……from the ocean.
