In Order to Fly (a five minute friday)

My Five Minute Friday on: Fly




It's a leaf riding on the wind.
Joining in a flittering dance on its journey to the soft ground.

It's a child and a board jumping on to the wave.
Riding free with surf splashed face as he's returned to the shore.

It's the oneness felt in a tender moment.
Free, briefly, from the distractions and demands of life.

They are words spoken, like a gift, from someone who understands you.

It's courage

born out of

weakness.

You must share your heart to receive the gift of understanding.

Be present to enjoy oneness.

Trust the wave in all its wild crashing —

And believe it knows the way home.

And the leaf,

it must let go of the tree,

to join in a dance with the wind.

In order to fly.



Linking today with Lisa-Jo…

Hi Christy
Truth beautiful captured in a poem! Just like the leaf needs to let go of the tree to be able to dance in the wind, we must let go of the "self" in order to fly with the Holy Spirit as the wind beneath our wings!

I loved your thoughts. I especially liked the part where the leaf had to let go of the tree in order to dance ...

Very profound!

Aaah yes - that whole letting go in order to fly part... that's the hardest part, right? (It is for me!) Loved this post, Christy! Great job!
