My dad sent this to me last night. One of his favorite pictures of me as a child. So long ago. So much has changed. On the other hand looking at myself here, some of my childish self remains. .
I often wonder if I’ve always had an adventurous, curious heart. A heart that doesn’t just belong to me, but to everyone I encounter. .
This years struggles have brought back some of those feelings that have been hidden deep down for years. A great empathy for those who are hurting or in need. A longing to help others with struggles. Praying for strangers walking down the street. .
The fact is that we have no idea what someone else might be going through. This time of year is especially hard for those feeling the sting of a loss, or change, or bad health. It is, and always has been our job as humans to care for those in need. .
So today when you go about your day, go to your happy church, eat dinner with your happy family, play with your happy children, please don’t forget those who don’t have any of these joys.
I’d like to say take me back to that summer of 1985, when I could sit and ponder about a flower or tree. But truthfully I’m still there, I’ve never left. I’ve just added a bunch of layers to my soul. ❤️ just my thoughts on this December Sunday.
