Step Fearlessly


(To break the captivating spell of a melancholy mood, sometimes all one needs to do is play!)


Sadness presses hard against my back.
A dark cloud.
A familiar shroud.
Life’s big questions going unanswered.

I stop, stare, see nothing but darkness ahead
peering from the crevices of the unknown.
Nearby shadows mock my mood
whispering and beckoning me forward to more of the same.

As I move ahead, pulled to darkness, a reflection on the wall stops me in my tracks.
The source of light?
Angels wings.
They sing their choral splendor of faith, their voices familiar and safe.

A feeling of grace washes over me.
The cloak becomes weightless, floating away, carried by the beauty of the natural world.
No longer seeing doom in the darkness,
I move forward planting firm foot to ground and step willingly into my life.

Ugh! Help! I can't get the white behind the words to go away! Any tech geniuses out there??? I click on the "background" icon for the font but there's no option for none. It's been showing up like that lately and it makes for an unhappy blogging experience! Help!?!?!?!!!

and pasted it on.

first i'm laughing a bit, as i completely agree with jennifer.....but i know how frustrating this must be for you.


did you try transparent for your background choice ?
give me a holler if you try that and it still doesn't work....and then i'll convince you to take a drive up and we'll figure it out together :)
