Golden waterfall

Standing under the waterfall of grace
Refreshed with the beauty I see all around

Standing under the waterfall of grace
The sounds of water rushing, drowning all other sounds

Standing under the waterfall of grace
Thankful for all that has come my way
Joyful days to cheer my heart
Challenging times to make me strong

Standing under the waterfall of grace
Looking back, looking forward
Knowing that I’m whereI’m supposed to be
Looking forward to what’s to come!

Standing under the waterfall of grace
Light reflected in the water that falls
Creating a golden waterfall!

My guide

Do we ever know for sure
What the future holds?
Can we really plan everything out?
Can we see into the future
And guarantee success?

Sometimes what we thought was impossible, happens!
Sometimes what we thought was for sure, disappears!

We can plan
We can calculate
Put in safeguards
Have contingency plans
And yet, the project can fail
The trajectory can change in an instant!

We like to think we are in control
And we are to a certain extent
But as soon as we think we’re totally in control
The unexpected arrives to show us we’re wrong!

Sometimes the best things are unplanned
They just appear in one’s path
Most times intuition is more accurate than intellect
Sometimes the right people appear in our lives
And their influence is life changing, transformative in fact!
Not much planning goes into that!
Only recognition of the blessing
That has been put in our path!

Sometimes things that seem illogical work out
Plans that seem impractical bear fruit
And how is one to know?
I let intuition and prayer be my guide!
