Morning Affirmation

Faith grows in small places. In cracks of concrete in danger of being trampled by people rushing on to their next meeting. It’s tempting to designate the area off limits, sacred ground, stop the world and demand wonder. Doesn’t work that way. You have to just keep throwing out seeds. Some grow. Most won’t. Such is the nature of small things.

You can’t control the outcome, only your choices. Do what you, as much as you can, whenever you can. Leave the rest to fate, to faith, to the way of nature. Let go of the results. There’s honor in fighting a losing battle for the right reasons.

The words that appear in a smaller font were used less frequently when talking about these same (physical and figurative) objects. When I did this, it was interesting to me that the bigger words all seemed optimistic and accurate precursors to the next chapter of my life; the smaller words were more pessimistic and sort of stuck in the past. This little exercise made me smile. It made me feel at peace with what I have walked away from, and excited to embrace the new experiences that are awaiting. I am going…to keep writing my story. This feels good..
