20/20 in 2020

My vision hasn’t always been perfect, although my hindsight has indeed been 20/20 at times.

My farsightedness isn’t so bad that I’m not clearly seeing what’s in front of me.

I’m not so nearsighted that things at a distance are too blurry.

There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Galatians 3:28

But what I do know is that my real vision, as utopian as it sounds, is perfect. For I’m sharply focusing on what is good, noble, and kind. I throw on my shades to block the harmful rays of divisiveness~my eyes focused on the prize; and clearly love will always win.

Have faith 💚

Who doesn’t love a pup frolicking in the leaves?
I caught this leaf falling in midair ~it was magical.
Some are losing their color, some are bare, and others holding on to vibrancy. It’s a perfect nature community standing tall and embracing change.

You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one.”
― John Lennon, Imagine

Our ability to reach unity in diversity will be the beauty and the test of our civilization.” – Mahatma Gandhi

A to Z

Hey Siri, am I a writer?”

“I’m sorry, I didn’t quite catch that. Could you repeat that?”

Am I a WRI-TER?”

“I really couldn’t say.”

Couldn’t she just reply, “Anyone who writes is a writer!” (I’ll keep asking her; she changes her answers frequently)?

To BE a writer, I must write. For many weeks at the beginning of this year I had a daily prompt. It ended with a change of seasons. Finding a balance in life is not always an easy task; particularly when you have a true desire to do one thing well and often. Writing is listed in my “to do’s” for each week just like an item on a grocery list. And when a surprise gift of time occurs, I immediately feel the urge to write. Each morning, as soon as my prayer ends, the words swirl. It should be as easy as 1,2, and 3…just like A to Z.

What do you see from A to B? 
Do you feel anything from C to D?
Can E and F stir your soul?
Will G and H make you whole?
I and J might not go well,
Then things might change with K and L.
Should M and N change your heart,
Use O and P and then restart.
You’ll learn again at Q and R,
By S and T, you’ve come so far.
Could U and V still make you grow?
At W and X will you plateau?
By the end who will you be?
Y all that matters is the Z.
Remember what you’ve learned and heard,
Use wisdom when you select your word.
What you live from A to Z
Will one day be your legacy.

Have faith 💚
