Roots and Wings

Roots And Wings

(Author Unknown)

 

Roots and wings I yearn for most of all. My longing to stay, my longing to go, come wrapped in the same package…I struggle.

It is very much the same when we fall into each other’s lives. Our roots say: Set up you tent! Be at home here!

Our wings say: Continue your journey! Don’t get root bound! Keep dreaming of something beyond!

When you love someone you have to let them go. It’s the only way to keep them. Weaving in and out of lives I’ve come to know.

The letting go as the surrender in that war between my roots and wings. It is blessing! It is grace! It is victory! It is pain!

St. Paul felt it too, (Philippians 1:21-26) Anguishing over his place on earth and his home in heaven!

I live now, not I, but you, all of you, live on in me!
