Some of you might know that these daily messages were born from adversity, during our months of quarantine last winter. They began with hand written messages of hope left at the doorstep of my wonderful neighbors in Florida. Then came the electronic messages sent to those in hospitals, fighting the complications from COVID, without the ability to see loved ones or even receive mail for months. The messages helped them to feel connected to the world outside their hospital walls.
We all looked for our safe harbors.
Soft Landings Today I watched a lone yellow leaf Twist and turn until its release. It drifted in the breeze with full understanding Of floating to find its soft landing. ------ G Hill It is the universal cry of the soul to be grounded.
There is something about the one, the one leaf, the one story . . . the one out of many that enters our hearts and lives there. Like Anne Frank. Rosa Parks. Like a baby hoisted up to the safety of a soldier’s arms. Like a neighbor who lost one battle to find his heavenly home.
Soon September will reign its colorful confetti Of reds and orange hues aplenty. The full display not yet begun, Time to consider the plight of the one. ----- G. Hill
When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Matthew 9:36
