Circle of Life

The Circle of Life

From the day we arrive on the planet
and, blinking, step into the sun,
there's more to see than can ever be seen,
more to do than can ever be done. 

There's far too much to take in here,
more to find than can ever be found,
but the sun rolling high
through the sapphire sky,
keeps great and small on the endless round,

It's the circle of life
and it moves us all,
through despair and hope,
through faith and love,
till we find our place
on the path unwinding,
in the circle,
the circle of life.

From The Lion King, these words kept running through my mind as I drew and colored this postcard. I really like the lines: through despair and hope, through faith and love. I've been there, we all have at one time or another. It's a test of our strength, a test of our faith, our beliefs, our values, what we place our value in, who we place our value in. It really all comes down to that, doesn't it. Who - and what - we value above all else. That is what takes us from despair to hope, and on through faith and love.  Just a little something to get you thinking as you go on about your week. May it be a great one!
