Beyond The Surface

25 Feb

As I was growing up I learned there is much more to life than what we see on the surface. Many times it’s what you fail to see that is the most important. Grandfather said it is the heights and depths of the surface that are important, not just what we see. So my life has been built around observing just what is beyond the surface.

In science we learned for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, for every cause there is an effect and there is a reason behind everything. I’ve learned all this is true and have been trying to show in my blog writings that there is more to life than what we see in our everyday life. That when we take the time to look beyond the surface, we discover little hidden passages of joy and beauty we didn’t see at first.

The three pillars of life – Love, Hope, Joy form the foundation and are in themselves multi-dimensional weaving in and out with each other to give us the heights and depths we have in our life. How we love each other, the joy we share and the hope we develop in and with each other all build and strengthen our world.

Forgiveness and Attitude are the prime determiners of the depth of Love and Joy we encounter and share. Now you just may realize life doesn’t just happen, it is a carefully choreographed path inter weaving with everyone you meet in your daily life for a particular reason. Many times we don’t realize the reason behind the paths we take, but most always we find a blessing or two along that path. It should therefore come as no surprise and we probably have blessed someone along the way.

I have written many times that there are no coincidences in life, we are lead to a place because we either have a gift for someone along the way or there is a gift waiting for us when we get there. I have experienced this throughout my life, yet am still surprised at the power of God’s blessings and the love He gives in each and every step of my life. Even in the darkest times He provided a light and a guide to lead me back to the path. Angels? Some people don’t think so, but I believe they are guiding us as needed throughout our life.

Now let me add Faith to the picture. As a Christian I believe Faith, Hope and Love add to the Joy in my life. Jesus said we need to have Faith, Hope and Love – the greatest of these being Love in our life. Without Love there is nothing. God is Love, God is Light and His commandment to love others as He loved us shows us how to guide others to His light. That is the height and depth of life.

Now go out and live life to the fullest, look beyond the surface!

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love,

Ed

    Darn..my 2 paragraph comment didn’t post. Just gone. Oh well, sigh.
    Basically I said that God surprises me all the time. There are always strange things going on underneath what I’m overtly aware of. They are small miracles. God is amazing.
    “Carefully choreographed path” you said… I agree! It is absolutely incredible. There are no coincidences.

      I would have loved to see the part of your comment that was lost. As I grew up looking beyond the surface, I always wonder just how people feel when they finally learn what is behind the scene.

      Love, Forgiveness, Faith, Hope all very powerful traits we are gifted – yet so many forget they have them. How blessed we are!

      Thank you for commenting, it is through comments I get feedback and once in a while an idea as to what needs to be blogged.

      Hugs,

      Ed
