B. D. Gulledge

B. D. Gulledge:
I used to sit on the banks with a raft and watch the water roll lazily by.

One day I pushed my raft into the shallows of the water and found the water moved swifter than I thought.

My raft was actually a boat.

Then, after some time, I rowed my little boat into deeper water.

There were great storms, mighty winds, tremendous waves, and sometimes I felt so alone.

But I have noticed my little rowboat is now a mighty ship manned by my friends and loved ones; and beautiful calm seas, warm sunny days, and nights filled with comfortable dreams always double after a storm.

Now, I could never go back and sit on the bank.

In fact, I search for deeper water.

Such is life when lived.

How do you stop the rain from falling down?

The right path

I wonder if this is the right path for me
I am wondering if the shoes fit for the journey...

When will I know?

Saint Teresa's Prayer

May there be peace within you today.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received,
and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God
Let this presence settle into your bones,
Aand allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.
- A prayer by Saint Teresa -

But you don't

I wanted to talk to you.
To unload my hearts contents,
To rid my mind from the worries,
my eyes from the tears and my soul from the sighs.

So, I called.
We spoke.
You ended the call so quickly
with a hurried goodbye.
The dial tone with its harsh sound
Then silence in my ear.

And then I thought that if you knew me better
You would have already known without the words being uttered,
You would have guessed it,
You would have asked about it,
Wheedled it out of me...
And then you would have comforted me and soothed my troubled heart.

But you didn't know.
And against my better judgment
And the echoes in my mind,
I wept.
I wish you had known.
But you don't.
