Life is a journey in itself. The smaller journeys we make during our lifetime, are life-changing. Back in ‘home for now’ I try to write down what has happened these past 6 weeks and I realize I can’t. God is great. Awesome. Taking my breath away. Every.time.again. Too great for words. But for those eager to read something, I will post some words I wrote down about a week ago. (And I promise to at least make an attempt at writing about some of the great things God has done in the past few weeks, later.)
The train is moving in a fast pace, running through changing landscapes. Magnificent moments pass and my heart takes a deep breath. ‘So much kindness, after so much unkindness’ a quote from Life of a geisha enters my mind like a soft whisper. It’s true, I am living in a time, drinking deep from kindness, undeserved, after a time of deep darkness.
In dreamy seconds I imagine how my friends are living their own lives in this very same moment. Friends whom I have known years, months or only just a few days now. Impressive people I have laughed and cried with. We have danced on the wings of joy and cried in deep despair. The journey continues as the train speeds forward and a genuine smile lights up my soul. It is again time to move, into yet another new place. Spending days with other people. Sweet sadness lies upon the breath-taking landscape I call life. Everyday again I meet new legends and heroes. At the same time I also have to miss out on being in the presence of other legends and heroes every.day.again. In times past I felt it impossible to let go and move on. Telling myself it hurts to have to say goodbye too much.
Thanks to God I have learned a few things in this life. And so now I know that if I don’t allow myself to go into tomorrow, I will miss out on all the goodness of the future. Every person is a blessing. Each one a privilege to meet.
A sigh escapes from my lips. I have a really great life. I so do. Wow!
Thank You God, You are the creator of it all 🙂
