Yes, I had to wander blindly in the gray fog for along time.
Yes, I was lost and disoriented.
And yes, I lost faith in my creator. But then I felt the doorknob.
I stood before the door for a very long time, paralyzed. I was not sure what would happen if I opened the door. What would be on the other side? Would I be safe? Would I live?
Standing for many, many moons before the door, I finally built up the courage to turn the doorknob. The door blew open with colors and music. And, I was transformed. I saw with my own eyes the brilliance of life. Not only did I see, but I was seen. I was witnessed. I was forever changed.
This brilliant vibrant colorful me cannot survive in the world of black and white. I must forge a new path on the rainbow of love. I must walk this path with those I love, or walk alone. But, one truth is certain, I must continue to walk.
