Life is dynamic!! Every morning when we arise, we face a new, magnificent challenge to live life’s fullest value and opportunity. What keeps me alive and spry at age 80 is Hope with a capital H. a capital H because it stands for the Hope I receive in my mind each morning when I arise thanking God for being with me today. With God in my life, I live an energetic, vibrant, and dynamic life.
I think of all that the prophets have taught me and continue to teach me each morning. Yes, I have my days of physical, psychologic, and emotional misery. What human has not had those days? As I remember that God is always within me, protecting me, lifting me, I remember that I am truly a member of His Holy creation. I am a child of God who tries to be as humble as Jesus in my care for my fellow man. Isn’t this the true life and peace of God’s Grace?
I do this by seeing the not-so-white face of Jesus in all whom I meet. I recognize the life-burdened body walking from place to place, humble in his reaction to others, spreading God’s Love and Truth to mankind. I give a little money and a lot of love to the brother or sister begging for assistance at the intersections of our roads. I can only give them these because I cannot heal them of their maladies as Jesus did.
But. . . I know that with the love and kindness I can give them, I am healing them spiritually, for the sharing of God’s Love bring healing in the form of a small amount of peace and brotherly friendship and caring.
This is Life’s Magnificence!
