Fallen Star - Perth 2012
*doesn’t this look like a star that fell face flat:)
I saw a post saying I will worship while I am waiting. I want to change that to I will worship while waiting, and falling.
This picture is one my favourite pictures taken this year(at least up till now). It is a simple yet heart felt picture. It was taken after a rain and when I was all in the gutters. I was just exhausted and tired and decided to take the camera out and check out if there is anything that was worth taking.
I was trying to capture some photos but the wind was just too strong and I kinda wanted to go back indoors and I remembered about giving God time so I just took a casual stroll down the street and back home. When I was heading back I saw loads of maple leaves on the floor.
This particular one kinda reminded me of the times that we need God by our side, when we fall face flat and it does seem hard to climb back up but without these situations, we will never grow and fruits will never bear on the tree that we came from. It might hurt while we fall and also when we love those people who seemingly don’t deserve our love, but as this quote says, that IS how love is supposed to feel.
“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”
― C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves
Let us be vulnerable and love and also dare to step out and be hurt.
