Second Thoughts – Breathing Salt Air – Proving I was Here
Greetings Dear Reader,
Sometimes I will end the day with thoughts that are important to get out. Usually I just write them and put them in my journal folder. I have chosen that on occasion I will share them with you Dear Reader.
Yesterday my Daughter,, Christmas asked me to take some photos of her at the beach. She is the family photographer so this is an important thing to do for her. She wanted to assure that there was proof that she was here.
We all know she was here but since she takes the pictures she is rarely in them.. I clicked away on my phone. My approach to photography is spray and pras. I take dozens of the same shot and pray for one or two good ones. In this effort I was successful. We have solid evidence that she was with us.
As I pondered the sky tonight I wondered what would mark that I was here. What have I done that will tell those behind me on the journey that I passed this way? My hope is that it is kindness and love that leave the mark. I hope some of my writing survives me. Will my great great Grandsons know who I am,? I am unsure.
All I can do is follow and be in the picture when I am invited. I can love and give. I cannot control anything else. After all it is the Father who will determine the level to which I need to be remembered. Hopefully it is in his image that I am seen.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
