A smile that lights up my life and eyes that gaze into my soul, I’m speechless. Language is such a wonderful method of communication, but this man made system lacks the ability of expressing the emotions, thoughts, desires and perceptions that God has blessed us with and instilled in our hearts. Much more than speech, far more intricate and saturated, the way that we feel and communicate without words is infinitely more powerful. A single word is a hollow statement in comparison to the aura of emotion in which I feel.
Each breath, slow and deliberate, I take in the blessings around me. I feel the air tracing the walls of my lungs, filling them up with life and hope, inhaling the positive intentions I have set for myself, the love that is shown to me, and exhaling any lingering fears that may exist. Just as the leaves blow in the wind, held securely to their rooted tree, my heart beats along with the breeze of nature, held securely to my faith and love for the Lord who created us.
Every breath that we take, every moment that we share, should be purposeful. We are all here for a reason, and it is up to us to unravel the pieces covering the image that God has painted on our heart, and see what plan he has in store for us.
