My Journey to the Edge
Each journey to the edge teaches me something valuable about myself, perhaps a new found friend, or about Life itself.  Today my journey has taken me to a remote island.  Not a tropical paradise buzzing with brown-skinned natives and tourists who have forgotten their sunscreen, but a self-sufficient island made of crystal sugar sand just waiting to be discovered.  Being so small it is possible for eager explorers to transverse it in less than a day.
I've sometimes wondered about the formation of islands.  I am told that they have broken off from the Mother Land rising and sinking through time.  If that is true, do you think the reverse is possible?  Is it possible to gather small insignificant islands together into one land mass again?  Maybe that is just as impossible as putting all of those pretty little stars back into their cardboard capsules of exploded fireworks.  That would take a miracle.  I know not all have a strong faith or even a germinating-seed type of belief but my journeys have always taken me to places where God resides.  Though his face does not show up in the photographs that I snap, I know he is present in every sunrise, sunset, smiling face, rainbow, wildflower, tree, sea shell, the moon, and the shining stars.  They are the work of his own hands.
And yes, I see that bright shining star that hangs above your head, fellow explorer; nothing could possibly remove it from your midnight sky. But don't be afraid to look down on the shores of pure sugar sand and notice the starfish that has washed up on the beach; with arms that reach.  Reach into your heart to ignite a glimmer of faith in the One who gives miracles, and the One who is always present to guide you on your journey to the edge.

Linda jo,

I think you have a wonderful way with imagery, I would be one with a germinating seed; but, never-the-less what, or where my faith resides this is a soft and inviting look at how much your faith touches all you do. It is an inspiring, even attractive, example of how faith can affect and enhance a persons life.

A message well sent

Your way with description gives a life altering experience. You picture than place everything beautifully. I wish I could believe the way you do and know that god that creates all of those beautiful things but I'm just not the right person to believe things that way. And yet this is a new favorite of mine. Your words always captivate.

"Maybe that is just as impossible as putting all of those pretty little stars back into their cardboard capsule of exploded fireworks."...this is a great way to show the reader "impossibility". Your journey is filled with faith and descriptive. This is a lovely read Linda Jo!
