It’s humbling how often we try to run from where we land, almost always missing the power inherent in the truth of things as they are.
Disrobing in Time
Nothing is easy, but to tell the truth.
The truth of what I see and feel.

Because I don’t want things to change,
I don’t admit that they already have.
Then I feel like the wheel of life
is tearing me apart.

feeling powerless is to admit what
is already true. Then the stepping
stones of Eternity rise out of the
mud, showing us where to go.
