Sometimes the Lord must brings us low before He can lift us higher. -Joseph Smith
For I have gone and hurt myself
Almost as deep as bone
Lost in the pain and darkness
Lo! I do not weep alone.
Right by my side I find
In my heart a warmth
Soft and gentle, loud and clear
Even as I soar.
Ah yes, that is the logic that a child of 11 years has.
My thoughts when re-watching Pixar’s “Inside Out” and you’ve passed the sequence that talks about the different Islands of Personality and Joy has stated that she ‘loves Honest Island, and that’s the truth!’ Which is followed up on in an ironic way later when Fear mentions how happy he was to hear from Joy that the whole earthquakes happening in California were just rumors and weren’t true.
I kind of just sat there and went, huh. Before remembering the logic I had at that age and that my nieces and nephews have had at that age and then nodded.
Check out the original One-Liner Wednesday.
Too often we all demand
Reaching out with grabbing hand
Unstable in our own ways
Searching for more honest days
Taking instead of giving most days
Sometimes we forget that trust has to be given in order to be built up in the first place.
