We need to strive to do something different everyday, to see something different everyday, to reach someone different everyday. WHY? We want to avoid the ‘same ole’ humdrums that tend to come our way.
As I grow older, and my body continues to present me with major weakness that has my mind also lapsing into tiredness too. I do not know if this time of 'learning' is a part of the ‘whole picture’ of the journey I am on, but I guarantee you people this trip is DIFFERENT!!!
The wisdom that comes from this trip, is the fact that when we were younger, we traveled in much complacency about life and the ways of the world were far too important to us. We were concerned about the celebrities, the world news, our government, or if your family was ‘okay’—etc. Now, however, because I am dealing with unknown illness and the body is deteriorating on a daily basis—nothing else matters but taking one step and another and hoping something is diagnosed soon and it is treatable. Wisdom tells me that God allows this for more wisdom and understanding to come into my heart and to have Faith and trust Him. For the truth is that this is the journey of most people who are dealing with some type of chronic illness or terminal illness—and because of my 'different' walk, it allows me to become wiser, and have more empathy with others. It also brings sadness into my heart, as I feel the world is ‘clueless’ about what is really important!!!
Live, love, laugh, pray, trust and obey.
If you are obsessed with anything else—WISE UP; In the end when all is said and done--- that last sentence is all you will be judged on.
