Finding Faith

Recently I have wished to be able to leap up from where I am standing, and take flight. Even just for a day, an hour, a minute.

To have a set of beautiful, velvety and powerful wings that take me soaring high into the sky.

I know exactly where I would go, so far from here yet close to my heart.  I would not need to go forever, only just long enough to catch my breath again. Take time to renew my soul.

There I hope I would find a soft place to fall, a place to offer some relief from the sorrow that I feel. A place where strength is inhaled back into my lungs and courage injected back through my veins.

Once I have had my fill, those wings would once again propel me through the air back home again. Back to where I need to be, doing what I need to do, all the while knowing that whatever the universe has in store for me, there is a faith that I can endure.

Lilly, what if you do just what you so beautifully describe...close your eyes and fly as a meditation of sorts...your words are so descriptive and doing what you long for just may bring you what you need. I hope so.

Lilly, thanks again for inviting me. I'm a little slow but I just caught something in your comment. "Just" so I can get some "much needed" insight? Are you trying to tell me something??

Yeah! I am floating already in anticipation. I'm going to watch the take-off scene in Peter Pan right now.

That's the mystery of the female species for ya! LOL ;)

Reminds me of high school prom when all the girls leave dinner to go to the restroom at the same time. If only I knew what they were saying ...

Dang!

LOL!<br />
Uhm...I don't know...this is Lilly's story...it could be a Ladies Night Out or something... ;)

Are you all going to leave me behind?? I know for some reason I'm usually late for the takeoff ...<br />
<br />
I hope Sylph has some fairy dust to spare. <br />

This is a beautiful story, Lilly. I feel similar today.

Lilly, c'mon now...a little trouble is fun...not major trouble...just fun trouble. ;)<br />
<br />
AT...your youtube music for Lilly...been a long time since I last heard this...Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes, Up Where We Belong...thank you for giving it to Lilly and I'm reminded... :)<br />
Yeah, Lilly...I'll share this song with you. :)

Roj! Don't you know that that could be dangerous! People have died doing all of those things. Don't listen to Roj! Just go to the beach.

You could make like a kid and jump off the shed roof??? <br />
<br />
Onto the trampoline ;-)<br />

Milliseconds of weightlessness. All yours. Actually Lilly, for that weightless feeling, a swim is good. I like lying on my back just under the water and looking up through it (have to hold your nose though). It's something you can only do for a few moments at a time but they always feel so precious.

On the wings of a snow white dove..... hugs]]]

Oh bliss :) can I come!

Lilly, you have time now before Uni starts. Go and do something just for you. Something that you have always wanted to do. Even if it's just to lie on the beach and look up at those clouds and breath and think about the strength that Spring was so right about...you do have it in you already.

Welcome,If you have that much confidence in you, I am sure Oneday you can fly to the Hights and touch stars. Good luck

I would love to fly with you someday, Lilly...hand in hand while we soar the heavens and seek what we desire. *hugs*
