Grace #2

Is there a difference between Faith and Knowing?


Could it be that Faith

is passed down to us by fathers and mothers

or given in very special friendships,

learned by reading magnificent books

or acquired when we make it through an illness

or the death of a loved one

unless the loss becomes too great

and we begin to sit with it on our dark seat

rock bottom

in full black

the place where pain can not cut more deep

writhing in anguish

we come to realize

we can still See

The Spark

Is Knowing.


Dear One,

Please always remember

you will never have more pain

than you can bear

if ever at the point of pure darkness

Grace assured

Love will be found

in the Spark you See there.

    Ah beautiful 🙂
    Faith lives in our hearts
    and knowing dwells in our minds.

    The Dark Night of the Soul – for ten thousand years has been the place from which the seeds of faith take root …
