The weekend is now and that is awesome sauce. I hope you all have time to rest, renew, restore, and re-create, or try to at least. Be good everyone. Love and peace.
As we have seen lately life is so not fair. It can be annoying that way. Things are difficult for everyone. The Rolling Stones sang you can’t always get what you want, that is wisdom for everyone. No one can win all the time. Life is set up for some adversity and the lessons taught there are valuable.
Fairness is something hoped for however it isn’t always what you get. The world has lost so many good people in the past few months that its very human to ask where the fairness is here. It can be tough for all of us to keep going when there is always something that can smack you across the face and make you feel like nothing is going right. When we see injustice happening it’s understandable to say something isn’t fair.
Everyone should have some level of anger when you experience an unfair level of strife and disappointment. No matter what you must keep moving. Remember there are a lot of people who are going through the same thing. While someone gets away with all sorts of things, fairness can be a source of justice.
Sticking together can keep you going when the chips are down. No matter what time in your life you are entitled to ask why things aren’t fair. Someone has an answer, that’s fair enough I would think.
Hello friends, enjoy your Sunday. Whether it be coffee or something else enjoy the flavor of the day. Grace and peace to you all.
Hello, friends. It’s the dawn of a new week. Let’s see what it has in store for us. I hope you all have a great Sunday where you can rest from the day before and prepare for the days ahead. Grace, peace and love to you all.
Coronavirus and George Floyd without a doubt are the two stories that have dominated the public consciousness over the past few weeks. The virus and racism are things that are serious illnesses that everyone is contending with these days. It would be safe to say that both have caused much chaos in the order of things.
Can we say that the chaos we are experiencing is going to create lasting change. Perhaps a new way of living and thinking is being born. Normal life is being recreated and in my mind its for the better.
For too long the status quo has ruled the day but I recognize that is a highly personal situation. However in a universal sense the status quo got us to where we are in this point of history. There was no way anyone could have predicted a year ago the pandemic but racism has always been there. Racism of any type is wrong. It is the great sickness that has cost humanity dearly. Why are black people treated so badly?
My friends we are going through some hard times in the world we live in. How we answer the call and face the challenges will be recorded in our history books. Now is the time to learn to love more and hate less. Be mindful of the needs of others. We cannot afford to mess this up. The future of our world depends on it.
Right now we owe it to those who have lost their lives due to the virus and racism to make things better for everyone. Yes my friends Black Lives Matter. May those who need healing get it freely. As a person of faith I pray for all to be well sooner rather than later.
Palm Sunday is the final Sunday of Lent, the beginning of Holy Week, and commemorates the triumphant arrival of Christ in Jerusalem, days before he was crucified. Palm Sunday is known as such because the faithful will often receive palm fronds which they use to participate in the reenactment of Christ’s arrival in Jerusalem.
Palm Sunday for many in Jesus’ fandom is very different this year. It’s happening without the fanfare of the palms and other ceremonial trappings. Maybe it’s helping those who celebrate be more intentional and introspective. Thinking more about the event and what it means. Jesus came into Jerusalem with a humble heart knowing what awaited him. His journey would be one of the most important road trips in history.
Happiness is a deeply personal thing that is so fluid and dynamic. I haven’t been truly happy for a long time. Sure I have had moments of joy but nothing long term. People worry about me because I am not full of happy awesome sauce right now and I appreciate their concern. Don’t worry about me. I am not suicidal or anything drastic.
The year 2019 took a lot out of me and I don’t know when my emotional tank will be full again. I suppose it takes a year of recovery to get over a year of hardship, emotional stress, and the death of my father. I am very much a work in progress. People who go through this come out different on the other side and I can accept this.
Believe me, I am grateful for all the support. It’s going to take a while. Being my old self might not be what is in the cards.
Hello my friends, how are you this Sunday evening? It’s been a sad day in many places and spaces. Let’s hope for a better week ahead.
