Marveling

(Continued from previous post)

In recent years my friend has told me that he has begun to ponder his own remarkable good health and well being. At the advanced, somewhat, age he had reached he was grateful to still be strong, vibrant, and healthy as a mule, while so many around all of us have suffered myriad illnesses and infirmaties.   

We both marveled at our good health and strong constitutions. Perhaps vanity attracted the Lord’s interest, perhaps it was just a hint of what was to come. I do believe that the Good Lord does not just visit the sins of the father on the sons and daughers, but smacks us down in the here and now as well, visits our sins upon our own heads, too.

A Wonderful Life

(Continued from previous post)

My friend has indeed lived a wonderful life and been richly blessed in many ways - though he has perhaps been oblivious to most all of it, most all of the time. 

I believe that if we look back in our lives we might find hints of what is to come, the TOYS R US sign that drew my eye every time I passed it at night, down in Houston, TX in 1975 I think was one such hint, to me, of what was ahead in my life.

Magnificence Manifested

A friend told me that he recently completed 7, seven!!!, years of cancer treatment - that they were simultaneously the 7 worst years of his life and the 7 best. He went on to reiterate, did I mention it was the 7 worst, and also the 7 best? 

I am beginning to see what he meant. Remarkable things are happening in my friend's life, who is embarking on this same journey of treatment. He is seeing real, tangible change, not just in his world view, or in his appreciation of a sunny, blue sky day.

He is seeing real things that are the manifestation of magnificence in the people around him, and in fact, around all of us. I can’t help but want to tell you, if you will be so kind as to take the time.
