In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Ready, Set, Done.”
I have reflected on the world a lot lately. My reflections include Josh heading off to college, my teams awesome accomplishments at work, Diane’s new job and God bringing me home to Eastbrook Church. A lot of change that typically is really stressful. However this time it is really different. It is filled with faith not fear. Faith that everything will be ok. I am definitely blessed for all I have, my family, friends & best friends and our accepting love for one another. I decided to turn the T.V. off and not work this weekend. This act is symbolic of me trying to shut out the world filled with hate and practice peace.
Our world is standing in judgement of its people. The lack of humility and acceptance of the world makes me sad. How did our world get into this place? It is awful to see in the news or experience the world’s fragmentation and lack of unity each day.
We have forgotten how to respect one another simply by appreciating everyone and how they can give to our world. I simply stopped watching the 10 o’clock news that highlights the mounting abomination of our world.
How do we make the hate stop? Is there some magic formula, or therapy? Is there a leader who can help our world change? Help us figure this out Lord God, our world is failing and so are its people.
I often say to people in my life, “Keep the faith,” or “chin up”, “We must believe that things will get better.”
I guess my faith is what I have to offer our world.
