Breathing The Light

by | Sep 2, 2012 | Uncategorized

It’s a curious thing how a life extinguishes in the blow of a candle flame, while a baby takes his first step toward a father’s outstretched arms and another lays his fork on the side of an empty plate.

Dust returns to dust and the parched soul seeds left behind, they crack open in grief. And  He breathes the pain beating back to life, one dark moment at a time fading in the light of blinding love.

I looked into his soul and he allowed it.

The world’s waiting for the light, to be set free from the darkness.

Breathe. Inhale His grace. Exhale His glory.

A friend was prompted to pray for my family this weekend as she was listening to this song.  It blessed me so much I wanted to share it with you:

    I attended the online Saddleback Church service today to hear Nick Vujicic. His words truly touched my heart. I can not believe how emotional I still am.

    Exquisite, painterly background in this photo; and bright yellow bloom standing in for the “light’…allows the brain to linger long, lovingly, over this well worn passion

      And you know, that flower is just a weed growing along a lake. Loved the way it turned out too. Thanks for saying so.

    Neat, encouraging song… turning only to our Lord. That’s all we can do. Nothing else counts. You are blessed and a blessing.
