The End?

 
"For only a penny you can buy two sparrows, yet not one sparrow falls to the ground without your Father knowing about it.  As for you, even the very hairs of your head are all numbered, so do not be afraid; you are worth much more than millions of sparrows!"
-Matthew 10:29-31

With every ounce of courage I have
(and with a great deal of cowardice too)
I let go...
 
..of all I have into all of You...
 
...the drop between the two feels like an eternity....
...like an acorn letting go of its oak,
 
all I feel is the falling......
 
The latent life that waits to emerge, the oak I am to become, giving shade, shelter, and strength to many, to all who come, begins to stir, even as I am broken open and buried,
covered in darkness and dying......
 
.....The Beginning.....

"That they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be Glorified."
-Isaiah 61:3
