a gentle unfolding

Sometimes, the call is like a burning bush

setting your heart on fire with passion.

You race, you go, you change, you act.

You are driven to respond, to fulfill, to minister.

Then sometimes,

the call is like a gentle whisper from the Beloved

filling your spirit with peace.

You ponder, you discern, you plan, you wait.

All the while, knowing you are not stuck

rather

you are the caterpillar

engaging in the intentional work it takes

to unfold your wings gently and

burst forth with new life.
