As Christians journey from yesterday’s Palm Sunday through Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday to Easter Day. may there be for ALL PEOPLE a time of calm & stillness to reflect on what’s important in life. We all know “life is short, so be swift to love, make haste to be kind”
May Springtime & increasing daylight be catalysts to seeing, hearing, being, in ways anew!
…”Watchtowers, drones & a toxic moat: The designs for Trump’s border wall”…”Technology is a marvel, now let’s make it moral”…”Inflation and wage figures to underline strain on consumer spending”…
All in a day’s headlines that seem to chorus, indeed let’s take some hard and close looks at how might we sing ‘life’s song’ ANEW?!
Numerous metaphors have been used to describe life. Among them is the metaphor of life as a battle. Try not to think of life in these terms because, if you regard life as a struggle, it will become one, and you will have little joy. It is far better to think of life as a journey in which the difficulties are hills to climb. The hills are there for a reason and the sense of satisfaction after climbing the hill is almost always worth the effort. ~Richard E. Turner (1937–2011), The Grammar Curmudgeon, a.k.a. “The Mudge,” “An Open Letter to My Grandson,” January 1997
To believe in immortality is one thing, but it is first needful to believe in life. ~Robert Louis Stevenson
Forgive, O Lord, my little jokes on Thee,
And I’ll forgive Thy great big one on me.
~Robert Frost, “Cluster of Faith,” 1962
Life is the hyphen between matter and spirit. ~Augustus William Hare and Julius Charles Hare, Guesses at Truth, by Two Brothers, 1827
It’s been said that we live in a ‘connected world’.
May your Monday joys be accentuated & any turmoils be consoled with a song that sings—‘hyphenated’!
