An invisible line surrounds us.
Though unseen it’s as real
as one that is drawn in the sand.
and we are in a new realm
entanglement in a love affair,
blessedness of God’s life and grace.
Mary crossed the threshold with her “fiat,”
Abelard and Heloise in their embrace,
the founding fathers in the Declaration of Independence.
Each of us decides—perhaps each day—
to cross or remain behind that invisible line,
that threshold into a new horizon
that forever changes our destiny.
