reaching


reaching
for a helping hand
up to lofty heights
into the void
out of my comfort zone

reaching
the rainbow's edge
my heart's desire
a soulful solace
home sweet home

reaching
to find myself
lose myself
reclaim time
replace lost love

reaching
searching
believing
hoping
accepting

i often wonder how we know when we've arrived. do dreams ever end? are we ever done growing, learning, reaching? will there be a time when i'm old, old, old that i'm past dreaming and wanting more? i'm not talking about material things. i'm talking about sunsets, and sweet kisses from grandsons and walks in the rain. i'm talking about that first summer strawberry, the warm purr of my cat, a laugh with my mom. i feel i'm always reaching for more -- more life, more living, more doing, more being, more loving, more blessed exhilaration in the face of nature and all god's beauty. 

please don't let me ever lose this thirst for life. make me humble in the face of god, grateful for every blessing, accepting of love and giving of myself. this is my morning prayer.

Your prayer is contagious, Julie, and I hope you don't mind if I offer it to God, as well. It is so beautiful!
