A Morning Idea

A Morning Idea

Lately I have begun to recognize that in the morning I sometimes have an idea—a brainstorm. Sometimes it ends up being a dud. Sometimes I forget it in the process of starting the day.

Today it was: in this time of the corona virus, when people are being isolated, when concern and fear are rampant, when there are questions about how long it will go on, this is the very time when we need to reach out in whatever ways we can.

The interesting thing is that when I have an idea, it begins to be reinforced by the next few things I read. This morning as I ate breakfast I sang a blessing and read my usual devotional stack of books.

The last line of the blessing I sang was: “and share somebody else’s load.”

The prayer in The Upper Room said, “Loving God, help us through the crises and tragedies in life.” Daily Guideposts was based on 1 Thessalonians 5:15 which says “Always seek to do good to one another and to all.”

So I’m reaching out today by email or telephone, by making a welcome home sign for a grandchild returning from Ecuador, by writing a letter I’ve owed for a while, by sending the Healthy Living group I’m in one of our own mottos that we come up with every session. I may send them one each day for a while—

Take one minute (time it) and breathe…

Done is better than perfect…

See yourself surrounded by light…

There is the saying “It is what it is…” Pat Summit always added “but it becomes what you make of it.” Amen.
