FOOTSTEPS IN THE CEILING

By Al Garcia

Tangled weeds and wildflowers, hardships, adversities and a dash of rapture define the landscape of our lives.  And too many times, too many of us feel ourselves to be expendable and disposable, creating moments of despair and hopelessness that dissolve the golden threads that stitch and bind the very essence of our soul.

It is only when we hear footsteps in the ceiling that the power and the potency of faith begins to sooth the questioning mind and the aching soul.  It is the footsteps of lingering memories and shadows of the past, and of silenced voices and forgotten lives, striding and pacing across the firmament that shades and shields the lonely hearts betrayed by time and trampled by the darkness that escapes the human mind.  It is footsteps in the ceiling that begin to light the path that darkness once consumed.

It is footsteps in the ceiling that beckons the defeated and dejected to embrace the moments shared and the memories made, and feel again the passion that once consumed the fire that raged within. 

To live among the tangled weeds and wildflowers.  To live the hardships, overcome the adversities, and devour the ecstasy with abandon.  That is life.  That is hearing footsteps in the ceiling, and knowing you are not alone.  For our house is built on dreams that never end, and on love that knows no bounds.

Listen to the footsteps in the ceiling.  It is the sound of the unending march of time that keeps alive the dream of us, and of those that stride and pace upon abandoned fields of tangled weeds and wildflowers.
