Character

Character emerges

Through the twists and turns of life

Shining bright

Unwavering

Soul’s gift to self

Baseline of all actions

Strength in doing what’s right

Overpowering shadows of past mistakes

A watchful sentinel

A warrior for all that is good in humanity

Even when storm waves surge

 

“Character is doing the right thing when nobody is looking.”  (J.C. Watts)

      Thank-you, Irene. Too many have a need to be recognized for the good that they think they are doing. Silent kindness from the heart is more gratifying to the soul. Happy that you enjoyed my photo. It was a magnificent tree to work with. 🙂

    What an amazing photo. I like the parallel of the photo and words…that scene would exist whether we saw it or not. (K)
