The Peace in Balance

“Maybe, it is just enough to believe with a positive heart that people didn’t let you down. It could be just this: They couldn’t give you the compassion you really wanted based on where their heart is now. Maybe, not now, but years later they will catch the memory of you in a quiet moment. There on that Sunday morning, a light will shine through the fog of lies, misunderstanding and frustration they built inside their angry mind about your true character. And, when it does, the shadows will be cast out to reveal a scared and hurt little boy or girl who just wanted to be loved, but went about it all wrong. Maybe, on that day, the whisper of their gratitude for your love will find its way back to your heart. And when that day comes, you will find yourself smiling all day long and not know why.”

~Shannon L.Alder

My take on this photograph and quote.

The sign of PEACE I captured in a moment of being in my element. Blue skies and bellowing clouds on a warm, carefree excursion to Snipes Point.

Looking back over my life I realized I had made many mistakes and numerous poor choices. On some level of my being, it was the best I could do at the time.

I have forgiven myself.

The fact remains I know I let persons down. Perhaps I called off work when I knew I was depended on. Maybe even with good intentions I made promises and failed to keep them.

Tid Bit:

Did you know the kangaroo  does not step backwards ?

It always goes forward, even when the world is going chaotically around in circles.

Its long tail is like the trunk of a tree and bears its weight.

In all things WE recognize the necessity of learning balance in our lives.

May every wound bring wisdom
and every trial bring triumph
and with each passing day
may you live more abundantly than the day before.
May you be blessed
And may others be blessed by you
