Learning. I am blessed.
I have so many things to be thankful for, and I am trying not to lose sight of that. I am truly blessed each day. I wish I was better at remembering to look at each day like a canvas painted with the pastel colors of blessings, it would be much more beautiful.
What would the world look like if each person were to paint their blessings each day? What if these canvases covered the walls downtown, the graffiti under bridges, the billboards on the side of the road? If phrases of jubilation and praise were painting our cities, how would our interaction with others change?
Learning. I am broken.
My heart has not left my stomach in days, and it is difficult to ignore at night. It will get easier, one of these days. Looking forward to that day. I want to cut off completely from the rest of the world, turn off all technology and hide behind my pen and my letters. At the same time, however, I long for more deep connection.
Learning. I am renewed.
The apostle Paul once said, “Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
