Hope for Humane

Last Tuesday I wrote of my Faithful Fall.  That afternoon I was involved in a fender bender.  Once again, I was jolted.  “Why me God? Why NOT ME GOD?

The truth: accidents happen.  The truth: it could have been worse.  The truth: all is well other than inconveniences and extreme soreness I’ve learned to manage on my own.  The truth:  I’m never alone.

Even if I didn’t believe that God sent his ONLY son to die FOR ME and FOR YOU I would still want to be best friends with a man named Jesus.  Who wouldn’t want to hang around a man like this? He definitely has my vote.

Jesus was attentive, kind, decisive, understanding, forgiving, optimistic, patient, gentle, wise, considerate, sensitive, thoughtful, diplomatic, and tactful.   He hung with the lowly.   He knew only how to love everyone.  He became angry at injustice.   He sought to unite.  How incredible of a human~if only to be like HIM.   

As we continue to spin and become caught in the hurricanes of humanity to what truth do you adhere?

As for me I am going to grasp my grit, embrace empathy, cling to calm, bond to boldness, hope for humane, kindle kindness, seize the spirit, clench to compassion, and fasten my faith.
