Keepin' it Reel - Fallen Beauty

Walking in the woods today

I noticed some of the fallen trees

And how beautiful they really are

As they are rotting away...


How beautiful every part of the life cycle really is

The growth...the falling...the rotting...

the fertilizing to make way for new growth again...



I started thinking about

Times when we are going through our healing process

How we don’t really look at this rotting...

This falling...

This letting things fall away...

As a good thing…as beauty…


As beauty…


We don’t really look at it as beauty...


But what if for a moment we could?

What if we noticed that as the trees are rotting away

We get to see the beauty inside that we never get to see otherwise


And what if...as we are going through our difficult times...

Pain...sorrow...sadness...grief...

Laying on the floor crying, in our deepest despair...


What if it was allowing us to see

See what is deep inside

That we never get to see

Because it’s covered by other things...


What if this rotting away

Is really to just expose our beauty

And can we remember that when we are in our most difficult times?



And we think, how it’s just so sad that the tree has fallen

It’s so sad that the tree is rotting away

Its so sad that we are in this pain, that we’re fallen

That our heart is broken...


And maybe if we can look at it in a different way

Just for a moment...fallen beauty

It might help us in that healing process

Maybe…just for a moment...
