Almost a year ago I wrote this piece. I’m sharing it again with you today.
I believe that deep inside lies a flame. A light if you will. I call it faith. I don’t mean religion. Religion is how many chose to embrace, celebrate and nurture their faith. But faith comes in all formats and I believe in each one of us exists this glowing essence. Faith is the language of the soul. The glow from within.
The flame glows mightily for some and almost imperceptibly for others. But it’s always there, none the less.
Some spend their lives disbelieving what their soul whispers to them in the night. Some spend their lives questioning that which they cannot understand even though they feel it inside. Some spend their lives on a quest embracing that which they cannot understand but chose to accept. And some radiate the glow from within for all to see.
Faith is the language of our soul and whatever you decide to accept and believe, it will always be there inside, waiting to come forth. I believe faith is the flame that shines within your soul that brightens your hopes, your dreams, your possibilities, your life. This I believe.

You have made such a difference in my life with your words…beautifully written Penny. 🙂
Thank you LuAnn. 🙂
I was raised Roman Catholic, but divorced myself from that mess years ago. Now, I’m just spiritual. I don’t have faith in any religion.
Nicely phrased Alejandro!
I have travelled through various stages of faith. Right now – (Just today) I was having some doubts. I’ll knock myself out of it though. I always do.

If I can make even the smallest positive difference to just one person each day, then I am a very happy camper Alastair, the motto I live by! 🙂
You make a difference to me. Some days I feel like absolute … well … muck. But when I see one of your posts, it always lets in even a glimmer of hope.
Thank you Alastair, you are important to me, in the same way that those you make a difference for are important to you, my friend! xx
