Here is what I was thinking:
Hope shines out for everyone in childhood. The birth of every child is a new beginning of life. With every child, something new comes into the world. What do these beginnings point to? What does this new thing hold? It holds the fullness of life.
New beginnings can happen any day at anytime. A new beginning always means leaving one thing behind and embracing something new and different.
How do we effectively live in the midst of a new beginning that we didn’t expect or even want?
We live in a wounded world. We have to keep an open mind and be objective.
Here is what I know:
On any given week, we can peek into others lives and learn about them. You hear gossip and you hear expert advice on a wide range of matters. The truth – as I see it – is to search our heart and soul, be patient and read between the lines. If you are quietly listening, reserving judgment, praying and genuinely realizing it is our responsibility to do the right thing, the result would be everyone treating each other with love and respect.
Surround yourself with happy people that lift your mood and theirs. We can be inspired and motivated even in the worst of times. I don’t want to be around anyone that is not optimistic. It does take its toll on you.
I believe God never intended for us to be this unhappy but we are required to do the work. If we do, a miraculous time could be right around the corner and we can begin again.
Keep the circle positive, peaceful and loving. (c)
Written with love.
