In Life we are not given notice of what the next day will bring. Often because of illness we may be informed as to a time frame of what one may have, left to live. Yesterday as I sat and had a cup of tea at my pity party, I could not quite shake what I was wallowing in. Between my sensitive heart and my fragile demeanor at the time, I could not see beyond the scope of my feelings. As I sat, there were many needs that I could have been focusing in on. Tons of situations to be prayerful about. My world has been shaken today. God has His plan and His purpose for each of us, and in our puny (my) minds, we cannot understand nor see the total picture. We are given our lives to live to the fullest and because we are human we have our moments of discouragement, illness, sorrow, pain and so on. Our mental health is really important and I could not live without spiritual guidance from above. Each day we hear of atrocities and we wonder about the mental health of the one that had access to weapons, it really is perplexing. But, I know what I can do and am capable of. I am given what I need, when I need it. It is up to me to feed on the goodness of the word that brings life and sustenance to my soul. Taking time to stop and be still, and know that He, who formed me in my mother’s womb, is God.
After having gone to a funeral yesterday, I am thinking about people, family and relationships. My heart goes out to my sister in-law and their young son who lost, as she called it, the sunshine in their lives.. His passion was cars and as an owner of a car-parts store he was surrounded by car enthusiasts. As I ponder on life, death and observing, it makes me think , do we focus on what is important or lose ourselves in the superficial that brings only temporary satisfaction. Like Mick Jagger’s song, I Can’t Get no Satisfaction. I don’t know the words to the song, only the title and maybe that’s all I want to know about it. Afterwards we went to the local car show and because my heart is tender and feeling a bit of sorrow, this blue image represents how I am feeling. I actually love blue as you might have learned about me from this blog. It was tremendously hot so my enthusiasm for photo taking waned due to being overheated. This truck picture was taken in 2010 and the property of the dear man who departed and was used in the handout given at the funeral. RIP Maurice..
I have some sorrow on my heart today as someone I have known passed away recently. His family and those that have known him are feeling their loss. At times he was a diamond in the rough but he had a heart of generosity and true commitment to his family. I learned much from him.He was a Family Man. So for today I close with these thoughts..I am linking with Mary at Little Red House Take a look you will be glad you did.. ps this post has been revised as of 2:38 pm..rgould
