Stepping Stones

Cynthia M. Spencer  August 16, 2015

 

There is a law of unfolding
which says we can go forward
only by going from where we are
to the place where we'd like to be.
Life plays out this way....
no limitation meant.

 

We move forward
on stepping stones
from taking the dare
to experiencing the freedom
to jump to another level and
from that satisfaction to the
awareness of another chance
to become something more flexible,
stronger, more invisible
and suddenly the speed increases
and we are skimming across the 
river that seemed
back then
too wide to cross.

 

In reality, there were hundreds of
stepping stones that beckoned us
on to our gracious encounter
with life in full bloom
shared with the others
who came the Way
one step at a time.
