the place when the line between Heaven and earth is thinner than three feet, and everything seems wispy and sacredness seems to overwhelm.
these are the shoeless places, holy ground, where sandals fall from calloused feet and the grass slips between toes. that's a prayer, right there.
i feel like these places come out with the spring breezes and impending April showers. they bring me closer to the ground, all laid out with palms flat to the earth.
what i need is the dandelion in the spring. the bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction.
the promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses.
that it can be good again.

i'm learning to love these thin places. these little gaps between light and dark, and open and shut. i like this barefoot season of scared and holy.
it's the glass of ice water, Life Water, beneath the spreading branches from a thousand trees. it's the whisper in the wind that sings of courage and strength and rest.
it's the thin places.
