Welcome to a Balanced Rock

To me, my faith is strongest when I feel my feet are placed firm and rooted, especially when everything around me is displaced and uprooted.

I consider myself a denizen of a balanced rock. If you haven’t heard of them, they are also called a balancing rock or precarious boulder. They are “a naturally occurring geological formation featuring a large rock or boulder, sometimes of substantial size, resting on other rocks, bedrock, or on glacial till.”

Like so many of these precarious boulders around the world, a lot of factors have worked against me, but I remain standing. As this past year draws to a close, I realize how much my community of friends, including fellow bloggers, have helped me keep my feet firmly planted on bedrock.

Sometimes I feel that I am destined to fall, dislodge from grief and emotions, succumb to the earthquake in my head. Then I look down and catch sight of my friends in an “Atlas” pose with their arms above their heads, helping to hold up my rock.

In the interim, a balanced rock is where I tread lightly, talk softly and hope my pain in some esoteric way will heal the world. With all my pain, I am relieved to imagine the possibilities.

  1. Your faith muscles inspire me my friend. Even if I don’t get to read your posts or communicate with you, you are on my mind and thoughts. What you have been through has shaped your faith indeed. Faith is my bedrock too. Your pain IS helping others heal. I’m sorry you’ve had to endure it; but I’m so proud of you and your example for all of us. God bless you always. Happy New Year and peace and love to you. ❣🙏
