Kites

We

are all

like tender kites;

fragile cloth and frames,

grounded yet unable to fly.

Unaware of the gift of grace

until His love, as the mighty wind,

lifts us, upholds us, swirls within, lets us

reemerge so we perceive and soar on His wings,

our sight and heart transformed to new heights

and new depths never seen, known before.

His fervent, extravagant love and mercy –

how did we not embrace

before this great gift?

Tears fall, yet

I fly.

I

feel

joy.

His Spirit

lives

in

my heart.

I

am

no longer

alone.

kite-tail.2I

am free.

I

abide

in Him.

We

are

in each others’ heart. Together we soar.

    Let’s go fly a kite, up to the highest height, let’s go fly a kite and send it soaring…. up to the atmosphere, up where the air is clear, oh, let’s go fly a kite!
