Every moment has become a dear sentiment to me as this journey winds on, it seems this summer winds on endlessly, one adventure after another. Then again each piece of this summer stacked on top of the others builds an equivalent to the grand journey we’ve all shared. Oh, what a journey it has been.. My breath escapes me just thinking about how much more wondrous the journey ahead will be.
Perilous, aye. Every step we take could be our last, but it could also be the first page of a marvelous adventure.
With each fold of the letter, as the ink flickers in the light whilst drying to the beautiful notes wavering in the air, my heart drifts away in wonder and joyous anticipation. Some of the most tiresome and frustrating moments can produce the greatest beauty.
Psalm 66:10 For you, O God, tested us; you refined us like silver.
1 Peter 1:7 These have come so that your faith–of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire–may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
Though the fire can be suffocating, as we shine forth with His light, a joy echoes through us, resounding in such a way that those exasperating moments are not just clearly worth it, but only a minuscule in comparison. Even then, all the joy we know now is but a mere portion of how it will be when we go home.
A smile, a wish, a never-ending song, may your joy sing ever on.. This is our journey, will you come along? A spark in the rain, a light in the dark, my love your eyes brighten my heart.
