Step over it.
Step across.
Find a rock,
a bridge,
a log
on which to balance,
but step over

Traverse the fault
without a fall,
without sinking low.
Find the bridge,
find the rope.

But, step over it.
Step over yourself,
don’t fall.
Step over
the fault.

We are invited to dance across the river that would sweep us away when we are rejected, disrespected or hurt.  We are invited to forgive and find stones on which to stand as we traverse the fault.

About Mary Herbert

I am a gentle listener, a woman of few words. My journey through life has been a spiritual one, as well as a physical one. My daughter, Katie, and I thought it would be interesting to combine some of our giftings/talents in a blog and see what happens. Let us know what you think!
