Letting Go II

"Death is swallowed up in Victory"
-1 Corinthians 15:54

More of a pirouette than a plummet
this Letting Go
It can be Gentle
With a Soft Landing
and a Laying to Rest
From this vantage point
("Looking Up"
instead of
Dreading Down)
I See the Sun above
Feel Your Arms below
Trust the Tenacity of Life
and the Wisdom
of Beginnings...
"Oh Death, Where is your sting?
Oh Grave, Where is your Victory?"
-1 Corinthians 15:55

Happy New Year...

"In the Beginning..."
-Genesis 1:1
The first day of the Jewish New Year, 5774,
begins at day's end,
...where Beginnings so often happen,
in the darkness,
in the dying uncertain light,
in the apparent ending of a thing...
in the Letting Go-s....
Happy New Beginning my friends,
Happy Brand New Day
Happy Rosh Hashanah...
It's going to be Extraordinary...
"You crown the year with Your goodness,
And Your paths drip with abundance."
-Psalm 65:11
