There is something to be said when it is quiet. The TV is on low. The grandkids are in bed. Parents are doing whatever parents do after the kiddies are resting. Suddenly, you hear, or almost hear your own thoughts.
I thought about my day today, and realized it went very well. I had no pain that I couldn’t deal with. I didn’t fall over anything. The only thing that got on my nerves is the tremors in my hands makes it hard to handle game controllers.
Each time I went out to smoke tonight after dark, I spotted this very bright star. It stands all alone and I see it each, clear evening. I look up at it and I wonder if there is anyone or anything that can see me standing there.
When we look up at the heavens, it is so peaceful. I wonder what it was like before God made the stars and the solar system. Was it pure darkness? Before Adam and Eve were created, God must have been very lonely.
The quietness and walking through such beauty that he had made, must have seemed like there was a bigger purpose than just the vision of the eye. God could see deeper. Deeper than we can possibly ever see.
He had a plan and he put it in motion and created life. Now I look around at this life he made and I wonder if he weeps when he sees such chaos. There is plenty of beauty left, but it has to be searched for at times.
Media does such a good job of making sure we know that this cop shot some person down, or a drug bust was made and 20 people were arrested. Now we have the political campaigns in force. There is always something going on. We need to be careful to what we actually let sink into our brains. We can be easily swayed into fear of living by newspapers and media.
The peace that I see when I look up into the skies, is not something that I get to enjoy much during the daylight, but it’s okay, I guess. I have that to look forward to each evening.
We are truly blessed to be among the living here on earth. There are a lot of good people still around us. We have many more blessings than what we even recognize. We are given a gift, and we are God’s gift. Together, it makes life work.
You all have a nice evening. Talk to you tomorrow.
