As waves gently lapped at my feet, these footprints in the sand . . . soon to be forever erased by the surf . . . caused my mind wander . . . Who just said, “So what’s new?” 😊
Etched in the sand was a journal of two people who passed by each other …
. Did they exchange a greeting . . . a smile . . . or just pass by in silence?
. Were their souls content, immersed in the beauty surrounding them . . . or quietly struggling with some issue?
. How many people did I passed by today who perhaps a greeting of smile may have somehow encouraged a smidgen?
Not that we should all strive to be over-the-top extroverts, but have you ever had a ‘tinge’ of . . . I Shouda’, Woulda’ Coulda’ . . . said something to that person, or at least tossed a smile their way to perhaps inspire their day a tad? . . . I have, but that moment has now been washed away by life’s waves.
So today I vow to be more sensitive to those making footprints in the sand strolling the beach with me, should I sense that ‘tinge’ to share a greeting or smile with.
The risk is facing an annoyed, “What’s up with you Dude?” glance . . . but at least my ‘tinge’ will have been satisfied 😊
Once again I blessedly awoke to Gulf of Mexico surf lapping shoreline, while on the other side of the world the Ukrainian people continue to bravely oppose Russian forces’ senseless, escalating bombing and shelling assault on their freedom.
President Zelinskyy steadfastly continues to defy his country’s tyrannical enemy, and someone shared this recent bold warning of his directed at President Putin . . .
“No bunker is strong enough to protect you from God.”
Courageous, wise, humble, God fearing . . . the rare kind of political leadership kind so lacking in today’s world.
Please continue to pray for President Zelinskyy and the Ukrainian people for the comfort, peace, and wisdom only God can provide during this horrendous situation enacted by a godless ruler.
