Compassion for All

Compassionate is our God.
And blessed are we for His mercy:
Mercy that reaches
everyone and everything.

The Lord listens and knows,
sees and understands,
what to the mortal
is kept hidden and cloaked.

Mortals are quick to judge and condemn
but The Immortal is not.
For He…

He is the Most Patient and Most Wise,
Most Loving and Most Merciful.

Among many other things, the Lord chose to create my heart.
A heart that ultimately, beats out of His will.
He holds my heart, not in captivity, but in love.

By God’s grace, I am connected
–with stars shining above me
–with the grass beneath my feet
–with the birds chirping in the morning
–and with the people living around me.

Truly, all are blessed and dignified by His grace.

GOD,
from the bottom of my heart,
thank you.

Thank you for loving me
and
for never leaving me.

I am imperfect and flawed
yet God,
You never abandon me.

So please.
Please never let me go.

As cheesy as this may sound,
I will hold unto to You.
I will because I love You.

Of Arrivals & Departures

“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been and there you will always long to return.” -Leonardo da Vinci

And oh, I so dearly long to return.

To be suspended in flight, far above the earth.

To cross oceans and cities, people and memories.

In search of new stories,

To behold.
