waiting to unfold

Most of us will never be great in the world, especially when measured by its standards - where product, stature and the bottom line are most important. But measures have a way of being changed over time. There is in the world a way of measuring that has less to do with standing up and more to do with being still. Your life is that small seed etched into earth - the horizon is about to change.

Your voice - that unique view of reality, that humble vision - 
is waiting in you.
Dave Harrity - Making Manifest

the whole world
waits, to unfold
in your telling
in a voice that is
yours alone
humble, real

Good way to think and share, as usual, Karin. You have a real skillful way of reaching out and about. Thanks.

Beautifully said, Karin! I have a fridge magnet that says, "Bloom where you're planted," and it makes me think beyond its obvious meaning and remember that sometimes we have to stand still and allow God to show us his plans before we jump into action. As a child of God we have so much potential... if only we will let him develop it!

Measured by the world - I don't much measure up. Measured by Him - I am complete - and that works for me!

Beautiful poem - beautiful heart!
