Two steps forward looking back

Is faith not memory and experience brought into the present moment?

Not the blind nor religious kind – for this purpose, they are not important

Faith, the reassurance that slowly builds in the mind

I did not die that time, though my fear screamed that I would

Perhaps should

Something protected me

Upheld and enfolded

I was passed into the next chapter unharmed

Life goes on and these moments pile up

Faith expands exponentially

Eventually becoming part of the story we tell ourselves and over and over it takes our hand until we walk without falter

Never hesitating

But what’s the reason?

Three steps forward, one step looks back

Faith, memory, experience, perhaps
