A journey taken,a day walked, a life lived...


Glimmering Hope Dimly Lit

Though the pillaging forces of darkness and fear assault and plunder my day and me, I shall not lose sight of the hopes and dreams awaiting me on the breath and dawn of the morrow.
Though none seem to know me, I shall console myself in the fact that my creator does.
When all the intake of my mind can inhale is dark, I shall be encouraged, knowing that dreams always ride on the face of the morrow.
I shall not collapse completely, for though I appear to be a Humpty Dumpty man, completely broken and spoiled beyond repair, I stand fast in the fact, that all the kings horses and all the kings men, can in fact put Humpty Dumpty back together again.
The fact that I am fifty, should not work against me I should think, for surely I have prevailed lo these many years, due to unmeasured grace extended.
Our genius lit, can only be veiled, when we seek to withdraw in fear, but in each moment that we stand up in courage, our wells and rivers of hope, perseverance and confidence, are rekindled.
We each were created, fashioned and spawned in intricate and woven excellence, all born in regal beauty, all worthy of the pursuit of love, hope and happiness.
Let not the pillaging shadow of today, steeped in fear, thwart our ability nor desire to walk into this day in splendor, for it is our courage spent and walk attempted that shall mark our excellence upon the dawn of tomorrow, not our success necessarily that shall be our grade given, and mark and testimonial.
For it is not how we finished the race that colors us in greatness, but rather how we ran it!
As long as our mission includes others, bred out of caring hearts, our walk shall always remain a noble one.
If you show them your heart, all men of value shall embrace it.
