Just Look at the Light

When the world seems to be falling apart even more than usual, when your efforts at doing good fall short, when you’re floundering around other people’s schedules…take a break. Sit in the sun. Watch the light change.

Long shadows on the back porch.

Pet each dog who jumps on your lap in turn. Watch the dogs be goofy and play.

I gots a stick in my mouth.

Watch the light as it fades, and hope tomorrow brings peace.

If it doesn’t, know the live you send out is helping, even if you can’t see it.

The light is never exactly the same on any two days. Shalom.
