dried leaves with fuzz

Aging Grace

dried lieaves with fuzz


white fuzzy seeds blowing in the air
some have become integral with these dying leaves
reminding me of the parable of the seed
the Word

for these leaves
these Words are softening the letting go process
their faith lighting the way

some words that are sticking in my head from a song we sung today at church…

“…as we kindle Sparks of thought your Spirit sends.
Sanctify our search for knowledge
and the truth that sets us free.
Come, illumine mind and spirit
Joined in deepest unity”
