A thought for today or for a few days! Can we choose to have resilience. Is it part of all life?
In my lifetime I have marvelled at this in nature, with animals and in the lives of incredible people.
When something happens that completely knocks us ‘off our perch’ be it death, illness or other loss. Can we come back perhaps different but still with something beautiful to give to others. I will affirm absolutely that this is true.
My lovely friend Kay who died when she was only 49 left behind a marvellous legacy of memory. After her funeral she had asked for a CD to be played in the cemetery. It was pouring rain when suddenly ‘We’re all going on a Summer Holiday’ reverberated around that place. Tears turned to astonishment. Despair turned to Hope.
For us we can indeed make a choice to be resilient in all the circumstances of our lives. Those who are believers and KNOW the faithfulness of the Great Shepherd – for them resilience is the POWER and Promise of the Cross and the Resurrection.
Shine in this day. Wipe a few tears from someone else’s face. LIVE!
