Moments Passed

Can you ever truly return to a moment once it has passed?

Or return to a time that has vanished into a room locked in eternity.

Like smoke through your fingers, the moments are quickly gone.

Is there hope in a return to an ending that is now somehow a beginning?

Once and forever a piece of time, a piece of you disappears into the past.

Never the same, hearts forever changed living now under a different colored sky.

Dreams now vanished into the seemingly endless dark black of night

“The fires flames burn hot and are never satisfied.”

What I fear and desire most …

What I fear and desire most in the world is God.

I fear Him because He promises to be spontaneous, out of my control, unnamed beyond my reasonable self.

I desire Him because God has color, like the fire that burns hot.

He is not pale, He is not neutral.
His light reveals the darkness of my heart.



“Supposing we really found Him? We never meant it to come to that!  Worse still, supposing He had found us?” ~CS Lewis
