Like a Grain of Salt (انتم ملح الأرض‎)

In our colorful life of different shades of greens, reds and blues, we trace our individuality.
We create the cocoon in which we survive and in it, is born our world of imagination, vision and dreams.
Like a priceless treasure, we learn and grow to protect our inner richness and value.

We are the salt of the earth…
We bring meaning and flavor to the bland common life that surrounds us.
Like a grain of salt, we dissolve ourselves in the ocean of humanity satiating the hunger of our brothers and sisters.
Like a grain of salt, we seem to belong, but we are different, not from this world.
Like a grain of salt, when called upon by the scorching sun, we recover our shape and are offered at the table of the One who shakes the hearts with His love, and whose Spirit inhabits the dwellings of his children…
Painting by Katia Aoun Hage (pastel and charcoal)
