Rev. Diane Rollert, April 29, 2019

We live through our own trials
with hearts that can be shut
into the darkest of tombs,
waiting for the rock to be rolled away.

We find ourselves standing before burning bushes
not knowing how to respond.
We seek perfection
when what we really need is peace,
absolution, forgiveness
and love for ourselves. 

Change is as inevitable
as the beauty of the coming season.
Even when spring takes its time arriving,
it always comes. 

The wings that will carry us forward,
are waiting within us,
despite the harshest winds
that blow through this world. 

Rise up, fly,
and be transformed.
