Today

December 14, 2012

Today I was up early, eager like a child to look out our front door to see what transpired over night. Winter Wonderland greeted me at the doorstep. My thoughts were all is right with the world as I basked in the beauty of the snow. I decided again to go on another adventure.

As I walked I felt very safe and secure. In my thoughts I viewed the new fallen snow as a blanket of protection covering the earth. A time to rest and reflect. Little did I know that across the states innocent lives were lost and families lives were forever changed. More turmoil and tragedy. I had been walking with gratitude in my heart to be able to experience the joy of nature.  Today life was robbed from many. The story begins to unfold a bit..A troubled young man… There are many…. Sometimes it is hard to comprehend how there can be so much beauty in our world in one place, and there be so much darkness in another. It all begins in one’s heart… So as a man thinketh, so is he… May God comfort the hearts, today.

    Words cannot express such loss. I love that feeling with the snow but I can’t help feeling guilty that I can enjoy it through your eyes when others cannot. You know my heart. Take care!

    your photo is so full of how sweet life can be and i found myself wondering about the beauty/darkness issue myself today . . .
    i felt such extreme sadness upon hearing the tragic news. so many young lives lost and so many families now attempting to deal with those losses . . . as sad as i feel, i know that their burden is so much heavier and my tiny prayers surely aren’t enough comfort to even come close to really helping . . .

    Prayers although tiny…. matters more than one can realize. Sometimes one has to see the little bit of beauty even in the darkest hours.

    It is a difficult truth that all can be well with the world in some places at the very same time all is not well at all. I struggle with that too. It’s good to share.

    Little things are responsible for our happiness . We call them little things because they happen to us every day and we tent to let them pass unnoticed. But there´s where the happy thoughts responsible for out happiness are coming from. When we smile or when someone smiles to us fills our hearts with happiness. It´s so easy to smile… and because of that we think it´s not so important. We came to think that only the things we strugle for are important. That´s soooo wrong. We are happy holding the loved one in our arms, we are happy when we feel the smell of rain or the smell of the forest, first snow makes us happy, chocolate, dinnner with family… Here´s where the happiness is. A new house takes time to become a home, a new house is new only untill it becomes a home… And the real happiness is not in the new house but in the home it becomes. A new house is a big step in our lives… but it´s an empty accomplishment as long as it doesn´t become a home, part from out legacy. Going home makes us happy, entering a new house no that much. The happiness is in the meaning of the things, not in the things themselves.
