What a month this was. Many of my patients plagued by flu and many succumbed. Makes me see how fleeting our life is, in a twinkling of an eye we can be gone and personally have seen it over and over again. It resolidifies a basic truth, we are all terminal and we are here for a purpose.
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace 1 Peter 4:10
We love investigating the ocean on our days off, every day a new sight, new teachings, erosion yes, however fundamental truths always to be seen. Like the feed frenzy of the gulls, or waddling pelican, so clumsy out of the water, yet just watch him dive kamikaze style and get that fish every time! And of course nothing like our visiting Osprey, fish eaters only and expert divers! They too mate for life, studying ornithology, there is nothing in which the birds differ more from man than the way in which they can build and yet leave a landscape as it was before. -sigh-
Oh just love watching the locals on the water, windsurfing and the like. It’s a gift to harness the wind, takes diligence and practice to be good at it and of course the champions are the ones who have never give up, know how to get up and brush off, clean up with EVERY aspect in every day no matter what one may have to embrace. Eventually you find this amazing gift called; contentment. Maybe this is what is meant by the saying; pure joy.
One of my dearest friends surprised me with a “forever” promise. Honestly didn’t think I would be embracing a hope like this again. Yet as I write this can’t help but smile, life certainly has a way of creating some interesting adventures. So like the gentleman riding his three wheeled bicycle in the back of this picture, yup, with that little extra support, we continue on the path and discover there a no wrong turns, only paths we were meant to tread and this time, without dread. Finally we grow to understand, God’s got this, every breath of it, after all, we are His.
Faith makes all things possible, hope makes it all work, and love makes you win at everything life has coming your way. May we never lose sight of reason for the season, the knowing, it’s all going according to a great plan. Love on my friends……love on.
