Faith and Leaf Fall

2014-10-19 11.29.04

There is only so much we can do about the clusters of clouds, the colors of uncertainty, the bare trees in daybreak, crowded swirls of steel gray and blue. We can long for reassurance, the sky peeling open, peach and pale moon. When doubt sounds like winter and wind gust, a moist leaf in mourning lingers in daylight; a reminder faith is not scared of the dark.

“As my sufferings mounted I soon realized that there were two ways in which I could respond to my situation—either to react with bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force…” –Martin Luther King Jr.

    Basically that is it what we have to work with. Growing pains. At least we are not alone. :D

      Yes. We can do this together. That seems the only way.

    Even if we have faith the size of a mustard seed, we can move mountains.

      I agree. Faith is immeasurable, miraculous, and can move us beyond what we can imagine. It is synonymous with hope. At times, faith seems all that we have. I appreciate that seeing this fallen leaf, writing about it, reminded me of faith, hope.

      Thanks for the reblog.
