“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.” Albert Schweitzer
“Since everything God created is good, we should not reject any of it, but receive it with thanks.” 1 Timothy 4:4 NLT
I have a difficult time in comprehending that everything God created is good…..I tend to see the ways in which man has tainted what was good and can take goodness away. Sometimes I think I can’t recognize it….we can get used to hurt, pain, disappointment or negativity that we’re comfortable there. Anything “good” has some strings attached….a catch…”too good to be true” sentiments are felt or the feeling that it will not last….”all good things must come to an end”. But I realize that none of those feelings are truly Godly and spiritual. Someone bitter and hurt came up with those sayings that we’ve kept going. I realize that I and probably many others, need to change my expectation and reception of a good thing. My first start…..a friend who has given me a weekly standing invitation to her home for dinner—-Yes, yes a resounding yes.
