Perhaps 2016

happy new year on top of the mountain looking the cloud


Perhaps it’s time

Perhaps it’s time to live

Perhaps it’s time to live boldly, abandoning hesitation

Perhaps it’s time to inhabit our dreams, forsaking our plans

Perhaps it’s time to start again, eliminating life-draining tendencies

Perhaps it’s time to do less self-censoring and more life-embracing

Perhaps it’s time to lay aside our baggage and go minimalist

Perhaps it’s time to abandon conventionality, recognizing its false promises

Perhaps it’s time to join the pack, if we are isolating

Perhaps it’s time to seek solitude, if we are silenced by the pack

Perhaps it’s time to drain the diminishing fossil fuel of this world’s wisdom

Perhaps it’s time to fill with the renewable fuel of the Spirit, blowing us into fresh reality

Perhaps it’s time to live boldly, as new creations

Perhaps it’s time to live

Perhaps it’s time


“Now we look inside, and what we see is that anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new. The old life is gone; a new life burgeons! Look at it!” -2 Corinthians 5:17, The Message Version, Holy Bible

    You write well, Mark. This is very good. I read it twice. Once without “perhaps,” and I think it is quite powerful that way as well. May you and yours have a peaceful and healthy 2016.

    Hi David S. Hmm…that’s a grand idea. You ought to do some writing yourself…O, wait, you do! Thanks for the input – and the affirmation. Blessings to you and yours on this Fresh Year ahead.
