The Light on the Back of the Leaves

The sun touches every leaf, but shines through the front, forming a light in the back. 

Though darkness falls on the forefront of our lives, there will always be a light within us; it may be hiding but it’s there. Hidden. Cast away. Still burning. Looking for an exit. Looking for a purpose. 

We can’t change what can’t be changed. We cannot make what cannot be made. We cannot fix what cannot be fixed. 

But we can sculpt, we can mold. We can teach and we can try. 

We try until sometimes we feel we can no longer continue. We can encourage, but some tactics will cease to change. We didn’t fail, our stars just didn’t align, we need to look at a different road, we need to find a different road. No one failed…because failure was never an option. 

A child will never fail to thrive. A sister will never fail to thrive. With all the roads God has paved, we just need to find the right road for the journey. 

Light will still shine, still shine through the trees, through the leaves. It will still illuminate the light.
