Thoughts on the Franciscan Way

Thoughts on the Franciscan way by a girl who, being severely autistic, thinks in "pictures, concepts, and ideas without words". When askedhow she envisages the Franciscan way of living, she responded:
it is diffciutl to explain. some one walkign on a road. the road infront looks desolate. it is empty and dead and difficutl. behidn the person grass is beging to sprot and at the very end fo teh road there is soemthign very buitiful that i can tno put into words. the person cna not see the grass beigning to gow behind them. they can see the road that is dificutl btu they are lookign at the end. it is nto a easy picter to explain. i can not explain properly. the person is lookign at teh buitiful thing. i can nto expalin. ther is alto fo hope in the picter.
So fitting, so beautiful. And just what I needed to read...

Wow! That is an amazing description. I think she has captured Francis' life perfectly. Yes, the life to which we aspire is not necessarily promised to be easy--but keep your eyes on the prize!
