"Some days I wake with a cloud around my heart. The heart, like the earth, is usually blanketed by ever changing atmospheres that come and go between days.
So faith, could be defined as the effort to believe in light when we are covered by clouds. It may seem like the overcast lasts so long, but the reality is that the sun never stopped burning it's fierce light behind the fog.
No clouds last forever.
The earth and all that grows from it knows this truth.
And like the earth knows, so does the heart, and everything that grows from it. Even in spite of all our understandable pains.
*Note how the trees and flowers do not collapse when the clouds roll in and draw strength from this truth."
Beautifully said don't you think?
With love as always,
P.S. I got these gorgeous pink lilies at Trader Joes more than a week ago for like $8 and their beautiful complexity has been knocking my socks off ever since :-)
