“Follow Me Through the Dark, and You Won’t Get Lost.” Think about the wisdom of these words! Some people live their whole lives, and never have the depth of understanding of this soon to be 11 year old. Both the chalk drawing and the quote that goes with it were done by my granddaughter, Isabella Marie. It’s an original thought that she came up with, and I’m very proud of her! She’s always loved to draw, but I didn’t know what a philosopher she’s become.
So many people are struggling through sorrows, and have no idea where to turn. What a blessing it would be, if there was someone who gently said, “Follow Me Through the Dark, and You Won’t Get Lost.” Do you know anyone who needs to hear that — someone who is wandering through the darkness? Could you reach out your hand and be the one to say, “Follow Me?” Just gently hold out your hand and let your voice be heard.
Do you need someone to whisper, “Follow Me” to you? Are you feeling alone and confused? Do you have the courage to let it be known that you’re feeling lost and afraid? Wouldn’t it be comforting to have another’s guidance?
We need each other — no matter what our age! In good times and bad, we need each other. There are so many ways to reach out and connect. Sometimes we need to lead, and other times, we need to follow. Share your strength, your wisdom, your caring with others! It isn’t hard. It’s a bit harder to share your needs, but it’s possible. It just takes faith — the faith of a wise and loving child to lead the way!
Until next time,
*Thank you, Isa, for giving me permission to share your wisdom and caring. I love you very much!*
