emotions are gentle waves lapping the soft warm sand of a sun-kissed beach.
emotions are raging storms that toss the largest ships as if they were a child’s toy.
emotions are tiny bubbles that sparkle and effervesce as giggles that cannot be contained.
emotions are salty tears that drench our cheeks with their relentless downpour.
they are pastel shades of a mother’s love, that overwhelming poignancy of meeting her newborn babe.
emotions speak truth and tell the tallest lies.
they are dark and white, and grey and light.
they are all the colours of the rainbow, and the blackest dream in which to drown.
emotions are life and the only thing that emotions are not
I love the thought that we don’t always have to be striving for an ending in sight. We don’t need to be following a ‘plan’. Sometimes we just need to follow the leads. To be still and listen to our hearts. Listen to the stirrings of our souls. And be true to what we hear.
Be soft enough to hear, and gentle enough to feel. Be willing to be moved. And then follow the leads.
Allow ourselves to be surprised.
I’ll follow the signs
Where they might lead
I’ll follow the light
Through a jumbled maze
I will trust in the source
That higher power
Of heaven and earth
And the universe
I will trust in grace
For this I know
My Lord loves me –
He loves me so!
