Resurrection

 

IMG_9486

Too long you have lain dark, my dear.

Don’t you think it’s time to

Wake up?

To come to the light?

I know.

Light is beautiful,

But also exposing.

It’s hard to hide in the light.

But

You don’t need to hide.

Because

It’s alright to grow.

It’s alright to make mistakes.

And sometimes you need to be okay with loving with your whole heart the thing that you know you won’t have forever.

Even though it hurts and hurts, my dear.

I’m not so small as you seem to think I am. I can be found in more places than just one.

It is okay to grieve and to hope at the same time.

Do you understand?

It is okay.

Come.

Leave those strips and cloths behind. I did. My Father and I have something much more fitting for you to wear. I promise.

Please come.

I will push away the stone Myself.

With my own authority

And my own two nail-scarred hands.

I will push it away for you.

Too long you have lain dark, my dear.

  1. “And sometimes you need to be okay with loving with your whole heart the thing that you know you won’t have forever.” Beautiful. I need to remember this.

  2. Oh, Jasmine. These words bless me. “It is hard to hide in the light” and “It’s all right to grow. It’s all right to make mistakes.”
