Autumn Glow

light of grace
creating beauty
through the brokenness
through the pain
through the woundedness
opening to new possibility
new freedom

“I feel strange power, bearing fruit and gaining strength to give myself to me. I sense the seed maturing and expectation, light-filled, weaving within me on my selfhood’s power.”

—Rudolf Steiner from “Calendar of the Soul”

I made a greeting card based on this image called “Light of Grace, opening to new possibilities.”
