Good Morning – A weekend thought.
What is a sojourner? It is someone or some life form that is only present for a short time. I found the thought below on a date pad. No idea who wrote it but it did resonate in my heart.
It is good that we sometimes experience adversity and sorrow, for these things make our hearts understand that we are strangers and sojourners here for only a very short time.
Shouldn’t this be the incentive to make the most of this time? It is too short to be consumed by anger, rage, victim status, hatred, revenge, regrets, What if’s etc. If every person could make every day count by one simple act of kindness what a different world we would live in.
BUT……….Let it begin with us, ME.
Accept the shortness of our status as aliens in this foreign land. Answer our own question of ‘where will I be spending eternity? Then, concentrate on living each and every day – the best we can in our jobs or responsibilities but never going to bed knowing we have left behind something unpleasant that may cause those ‘left behind ‘unnecessary regret and unresolved sadness. SHINE LIGHT in each day. Perhaps not always the brightest through circumstances. But a LIGHT nevertheless. A memory!. A smile!. A kindness!
Live Life – Fully, Brilliantly for others as well as self!
