Just to the side of the garage, there is a small pile of snow that will not go away although the temperatures have been high enough to melt it. There are 2 ways to view this: the snow is tenacious, strong, unwilling to bend to the expected and, instead, providing an alternative that says "live strong". OR: Like a growth or an aggravating cough, it will not go away. It will stay and remind us that the world is cold and frozen and has no real alternatives.
Question: Which do you choose? Another question: Which do you LIVE?
Integrity A word that today Seems to have no meaning Greed, lust, addiction, gluttony These are words people do not say But live How do we purge our world In such a way That other demons will not replace these? To live honorably To die with true dignity We need integrity to return to our world to our lives.
This is my first post to my blog. Somehow, it seems fitting to begin a new thing today. In 1979, my father committed suicide on this day. These days I try not to remember the pain of that time, but the fact that it catipulted me into a new way of being. And that experience was a part of what led me to ministry. It is a part of who I am, but also a part of who I am becoming.
As I begin this part of my journey, I give thanks to the God who created all of us for all the people who have helped shape, mold, punch, prod and hold and bless me to the place and person I am and am becoming. God's graces to each of you...and believe me when I say I pray for you, I truly do.
