"And I beheld, and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven,
saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth....

Starting Over

Starting Over
By:  Eric Gajewski

 Press play and listen as you read along...

We waste our lives waiting for the end of it when today stands before us presenting us with new opportunities to live.  To love is to live to feel pain is only normal to those starting over. Do we have the Faith that Love shall guide us?  Do we have hope enough to see beyond the Storm?  For the hardest thing to do is to say we believe amidst a mind which says it cannot be so and amidst  a heart torn between the yes and no.  There is often a fine line between Faith and fear yet is Our God who walks along it. It is true these two wings of an eagle Faith and Hope cannot save us ultimately only Love can but it assuredly can carry us from day to day. Amidst the Storm, amidst these crashing waves, we still are given the power from on high to say, nigh, we still can have hearts anchored in Faith.  Keeping us to fly in the Storm taking us to the rainbow of Mary’s new day. 

Love is starting over.  Like the tape player whose button is held down on replay.  Love requires us to stay in His Way.   It demands and is disciplined in order that thy heart might not retreat nor run astray.  May God grant the perseverance for where I am weak there is always His grace. Love is starting over but who will choose silence over action?  Who has the patience to slow down long enough to catch a glimpse of His Face?  Yea, Love is only what remains for it was Love Whose strength first helped to turn over this sinner’s page.   

Love is commanding enough in the end to dismiss even Faith and Hope for heaven is the Place of perfect charity.  Nay, but will my heart run astray?  Love is starting over taking to the field of battle every morn’ and when the victory cometh even then we remain to pray.  Love is brave enough to embrace new beginnings.  And only perfect Love hath no fear for only Love can know which way to go and so my heart exclaimeth, “because where You art O’ Lord, I hope to be, because Love is all so near”.  Love is starting over when our wills say no for it is only in the Storm that His Face doth vibrantly and mightily show.  And as an end seemingly approach may Hope keep your own heart afloat for is not His Heart wise enough to help our souls grow?  Love is starting over again, therefore, fear not and with each day given prepare to make your own heart His earthly Home.
