I sat here.
Content I say…
As my lungs were inhaling and exhaling with deliberation.
And I hurled…
With the force of frustration; those burdens that would drain me of my empowerment, into the tempest of the stream never to be seen again.
I rejoiced in its defeat.

Hope it helped. Prayers for continued enpowerment. Merry Christmas!
This is an old reflection and if memory serves… It worked like a charm Audrey!
Even better when it’s an old reflection. I was hoping your season was bright. 🙂 Merry Christmas, Shun.
Thanks Audrey, it is coming along 🙂
Deeply inspiring. Eloquently spoken and deeply meaningful. Breathtaking 🙂
My niece just asked me to define the word content. I enjoyed your reflection, short and to the point. “This to shall pass” they say…and I’m glad for the stream 🙂
Thanks for reading Twright, I truly appreciate it! The stream is often taken for granted as we neglect to schedule time to cast our burdens into it at regular intervals.
Beautiful. It makes me think of a scene from a powerful book I teach with my fifth graders–Bridge to Terabithia. I wouldn’t spoil it if you’ve never read it, but I can say that there is a lot of water symbolism in the book. 🙂
