The tide rolls and swells with change, swirling closer and closer to precious foundations.
Days dawn bright and hot. Air is warmer than anything that’s been felt in a long time.
Lingering memories rise to the surface anew, a trove of mysteries never abandoned.
Moments that were days that were weeks that were months become one year.
For the first time, the heart is heavy for the plight of the distant oppressed.
But light for the joy and beauty that linger in summer skies.
Dreams are re-discovered and doors begin to open.
Prayers bring hope and healing.
Life takes on new vibrance.
Truth is everything.
