when the day comes

when the day comes
all that hinders
will fall away
like a shedding skin

and the eagle will rise

when the day comes
all will be mended
and re-formed
into utter lightness

and the eagle will rise

when the day comes
the heart's fetters
will break open
and crumble to dust

and the eagle will rise

and may she soar
on wings unbroken
utterly alive
utterly free
utterly whole

may she glide
may she dream
may she live

when the day comes

just wanted to say Hi ;-)
found your blog through SALT and I'm happy about it. I share your passion for going deeper - in myself, Faith, life ... and some other interests too ... and I have two friends who also suffer from ME.
sending you lots of energy and sun
with prayer

Hi, thanks so much for your comment on my blog. I've enjoyed reading yours as well, especially the post about our purpose. The line

"What is the purpose of my existence?
I want to glorify you forever"

That has been a reoccurring theme for me the last few years. When we can condense it down, every thought, action and motive we have can glorify Him if we chose to. Even in our weakness, He is strong!
