Our brightest blazes are commonly kindled by unexpected sparks.
It's true that you cannot start a fire without a little spark. Matter of fact it's hard to start anything unless something sparks our attention. Even our cars won't start without a spark.
The image of a spark is full of meaning and so symbolic. When we say we have lost our spark for life we are in a very difficult situation, there is no energy flowing in us and find no motivation to do anything. We need sparks to make us feel like singing and dancing. Sparks that get us going.
There are so many different kinds of sparks - a spark of kindness, of love, of support, of understanding, of comfort, of light, of hope, of meaning and so much more.
Unexpected sparks in my life have almost blown me away with their intensity. Little things are often the best of things. Ordinary days can be the most wonderful ones.
A spark of kindness starts a fire of love.
