The air is sharp and it’s a little frosty this morning, cool enough to call for that extra layer that makes a difference between feeling cold and feeling just right for the occasion of being outside. The sun is shining and the skies are clear. It’s a beautiful day.
Each new day is a gift.
Each new day will inevitably have some challenges built into it.
Each new day invites us to let go of anxiety, dwell within a mindset of simplicity, experience peace and reproduce its peacefulness.
The matter between my ears must be rather dense because these simple and uncomplicated truths are lessons that I have to continually relearn. It’s not that I forget them.
Life gets busy. Well intentioned people, often with their own well-intentioned agendas, have a way of innocently encroaching. Others aren’t so innocent when they encroach. They do it knowing what they are doing … manipulating, driving home the nails of their agendas. Unexpected tragedies and crises also have a way of factoring their effect into and onto our lives. None of us are immune to them.
One plus one.
Prayer and work.
Simple. Not easy. But it always comes up with the same answer.
