Quote Worthy

“Come to the edge.”
“We can't. We're afraid.”

“Come to the edge.”
“We can't. We will fall!”

“Come to the edge.”
And they came.

And he pushed them.
And they flew.

Guillaume Apollinaire, 1880-1918
French Poet, Philosopher

I read this a few weeks ago on a Friends Fabebook page listed as one of her fav. quotes. I thought it was so beautiful. God does give us a push sometimes...but then gives us the wings that we need to SOAR!

If we could only 'see' what freedom could really look like we would be so less reluctant to take the steps to get there.

Wow what an amazing quote.
Reminds me of the joint service at Calvary Temple when the Pastor talked about the Eagles nest and how her babies learned to fly.
