Come to the Edge – an invitation

 

I want to share with you the source of my blog’s name, “Come to the Edge Today”.   I discovered it years ago when designing women’s retreats for my church.  I met a new friend on one of the retreats.  She gave me a copy of the CD and said, “I think you’ll really find this meaningful; I want you to have it.”  Little did she know how that song would be the tool for shaping my life and daring me to be “more”.

I am the pilgrim on that journey, and so are you!  Our valleys and our “edge” may be different, but the One doing the calling is the same.  We are all called to “live” and expand into our dreams.                          

Come to the Edge

from Splash! (new 2010 edition)

Once was a valley surrounded by beauty
Rivers and love flowed through
Mountains would frame the glorious sunsets
Seen by only a few

Now in the valley there lived a sweet fragrance
Dancing through water and air
All who have smelled it are filled with great wonder and
Dance with Life that lives there

Once came Pilgrim seeking Life’s meaning
Searching for love and for peace
Troubled in heart and tired in spirit
She sought a joyful release

“Come to the edge!” Life said
“Come and swim in my joy!
“Laugh! Play! Let your fears melt away.
“Come to the edge today!”

The pilgrim was frightened by the words Life spoke
And said to Life, “I am afraid…”
“My feet want to stay here on this solid ground,
The path that I’ve known all my days.
But my ears have heard of all you can offer –
And my eyes have seen your great ways.
My soul wants to taste in the brilliance for itself and
My heart wants to dance and play!
My heart wants to dance and play! Play!

“Come to the edge!” Life said
“Come and swim in my joy!
“Laugh! Play! Let your fears melt away.
“Come to the edge today!”

The Pilgrim sat at the edge for a little while
And wiggled her toes in the sand.
She splashed and she played in the Life
and she took a breath
and
she
flew

“Come to the edge!” Life said
“Come and swim in my joy!
“Laugh! Play! Let your fears melt away.
“Come to the edge today!”
