In Plain Talk

16 Feb

I am frustrated! Why you ask? I am frustrated because most of the people who read my blog, only see what is written on the page. They read over it, not taking the time to discover what is really being said with all the words. Words, just words!

With my last two blog posts: The Angel Within and In Plain Sight I received about 100 e-mails, facebook comments or text messages. Most of them made cute of the post, some of them were serious. From: I never gave it any thought that we could have Angels around us, to I know what you mean when I backed into my closed gate twice before I realized it was not open. One comment told me the reader saw the light: You succeeded in pointing out that God gives a narrow window in which we discover life and love!

We are led, sometimes pushed, in a particular direction by God to open our eyes to a new venture in life. Many times we travel this path we are being lead down without knowing what caused us to choose that direction at the time other than a whim. Most often we meet someone or see something that catches our attention and we learn a new lesson. Many times we blind ourselves, wrapped up in our daily routines, so we fail to see the glimmer of sunshine coming through that narrow window.

There is nothing that happens in our life without a reason behind it and there is no one that crosses our path without a reason. We are drawn to people who either have a gift for us or needs a gift we have for them! Nothing is by accident! There is no such thing as coincident! God has planned each and every detail. We just need to trust Him and open our eyes, hearts and ears to His lessons in love!

I love life, all forms of life and I see love just about everywhere I go. I believe there are many opportunities everyday to share my love and open the door for others to see love in full bloom. It could be the stranger I pass on the corner or the clerk at the checkout register in the grocery store. It could be the elderly gentleman who dropped his hat or the youngster who tripped over the tree root in the park. It is everyone we meet or crosses our path everyday of our life.

Today people are in a hurry, want instant gratification and want all of life in one big gulp. Life is not meant to be gulped and if you don’t slow down it will pass you by without even a small wave. The windows of opportunity are narrow! But they are there if you take the time to see them. Sadly, many people fail to see 60% of what they pass everyday and ever sadder they are the ones who feel cheated in life because they think they were passed over. Believe it or not, there is even a blessing in an illness and the gift it carries can light up the world of someone special in your future.

If you would be so kind, I ask that you take the time and read these two posts again, slowly looking into the meaning behind the words. I’ve included the links below.

Whether you read them again or not reflect on this: Enjoy life sip by sip not gulp by gulp. You will not experience the full bloom of the fruit if you continue to rush it.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love,

Ed

    Excellent! I say this not only because it is very well written, but also because what you have written essentially mirrors a fairly uncommon long-standing opinion of my own.
    IDENTIFICATION is always a very welcome thing. 🙂 But isn’t that a Biblical truth?

    He has a hand in ALL things. Nothing is by accident.
