Faith of the Heart

My heart has been very full of late. And heavy. My emotions run the gamut from anger, helplessness, fear, and frustration to deep love, hope and forever faith-because faith is that which always brings us through. I say ‘us’ because as lonely as I feel, surrounded by cold indifference and obvious apathy and ignorance to the survival of our human race, I know you are out there. No one can douse our heart lights. We are the Light Ones, the ones who must continue to Illuminate the darkness, to love beyond all obstacles and to carry the torch of faith into an uncertain future.  The meaning of life is to ‘live’ and to do it with love, for love is what sustains our souls.

I had a dream last night about my deceased mother. I was handing her a young child and she took him from my arms and told me everything was going to be fine and to be brave. I have to find my ‘brave’ from deep inside and wear it proudly. I awoke with this song in my head and can’t shake it so I am sharing it with you all. Perhaps it will mean something to one of you as well. For me, it is a reminder of my timeless soul and that after all is said and done, we will remain as we were in the beginning. Until then, if we want a better world, we sometimes have to fight for it, because there are so many willing to fight to steal it from us.

Have faith, let it be your shield and support. We do have help ‘out there’. We just often forget to ask for it.

 

Always a Potter Moment

I have found there is always a Harry Potter moment that will apply to things in life. I even found a way to apply it to today’s SoCS prompt from Linda Hill. The word is cave and can be used as a verb or a noun.

I decided on a name. A band. And a song from one of my favorite Harry Potter installments, The Deathly Hallows.Enjoy your weekend!

It seems appropriate in these dark times to look for the light now more than ever….
