Life Sonnet 10.11.22

Circles go round
Seasons always passing
Years flying by

Hair once golden
Silver now abounds
Thinning each day

From womb bursting
Discovery of youth
Reconciling dated age

Rich soil planting
Cultivated earth growing
Mature fields harvest

Speaking to say
Listening to hear
Meditating to understand

Alone not I
Not me alone
God with me

Spirit in us
Jesus our Savior
God our Father

Alpha and Omega
Beginning and End
Always and Forevermore

Hello friends, these words came to me today as I was contemplating life, my life and it’s composition. I was raised in a rural area of Indiana with loving parents. I have a baby brother, who’s no longer a baby and has grown into a good man, husband, father, grandfather, son and brother. The older I get the more I appreciate him. I was fortunate to grow up with many aunts, uncles, cousins and even second cousins. I experienced life in a community were I was not fearful of playing outside even into the twilight. I loved riding my bike and playing in the yard, as the neighborhood kids would also do. As I write this, it sounds even a bit “hokey” to me, but it’s all true. I have found as I age the hurts of youth soften, not go away but I also do not allow them to steal precious time from me any longer. Looking through the lens of maturing eyes gives me perspective, for all the wrongs that I have received, and those I have given. Wisdom of age, nothing is fair and will never be so. Pinned up anger can only rob us of joys, current and unseen. It is true, the slogan “Just Be Kind.” It costs you nothing to give and you might just get something more precious in return.

As I sit and pondering all the bitterness, brokenness and wrongs that have befallen to me, I have a choice…allow myself to become engulfed with rage and resentment or I can look at what I have gained from each experience I have endured. Whether you put much thought into the cultural thoughts around the world, how can one deny that without pain, how would one know joy? Life is balance, it can be represented in all areas of living; too much of one thing can throw off balance. Sleep and waking; nutritious food and yummy foods, play and work, study and knowledge, etc.

Balanced living means considering all aspects of your life: relationships, work, fitness and health, and emotional well-being.

We all get bogged down with work and family responsibilities from time to time, but making time for yourself is necessary so that you can keep up with all your responsibilities. All batteries get run down, even yours. So recharge your body physically and mentally and make the commitment to enjoy some “you time” every day.

I guess what I’m trying to convey is life can be what you want it to be. I’m not saying our choices will be without challenges or disappointments but they can be, indeed BE exactly what we want, need and desire. A friend of mine taught me in times of uncertainty, “Trust The Plan” she helped me see that our Creator knows us and knows what’s best for us and we need only trust in Him.
