The Waterfall

There is a river that flows from the throne

A river that gives life

Making valleys, forging paths

It comes to a cliff and drops


A beautiful waterfall beyond imagination

I approach the waterfall slowly

As I cup my hands the water fills them

More calmly that the flow should allow


I take my full hands and splash my face

The water flows over my head and runs down my back

I am refreshed, I am renewed

I feel like I can face another day


In that very moment my eyes open wider

I look around and notice that I walked through

The pool created by the river to reach the waterfall

I was wading in and surrounded by that which I journeyed to reach


Once again I simply smile and acknowledge

My limitations and His limitlessness
