Five Minute Friday, this week writing on Easy! GO!
April, a hard month. Sometimes the darkness falls thick and we struggle to overcome. But comfort is drawn in the fact that, when the dark clouds are heavy and thick, it may be that we are caught up in this storm, but the clouds are dark because they carry rain. Rain that will soon water the earth. Rain that will soon bring life. Rain that will soon nourish and hit the desert, feeding its thirst. Rain that touches life gently and feeds again. When the clouds finally part, the beauty of the great blue sky and the smiling sun, appear so much more beautiful then before. As though you see it for the very first time. Everything is new, even the air.
Continue at the work you have been given I hear. Continue when it's difficult. I pick it up again and feel the trembling aftershock of this earthquake of darkness, the way the clouds have roared and thundered. Work hard at the work being given to you, keep going, do not stop, do not allow this enemy of darkness to take the holy work placed in your hand and render it as nothing. I pick up these tasks again and feel life peek slowly back in to the cracks, gently coming in, not rushing. As though learning to walk again. Out of practice, out of my usual gait, I wrestle with how hard this is, not easy but tenderly there is a whisper, Sshhh, Sssh, I hear. A whisper to my child heart within, the comfort of a parent to its child, Ssssh Ssshh, slowly, begin again.
