227 Keep On Keeping On

"Every oak tree started out as a couple of nuts who stood their ground." (Henry David Thoreau) I thought of A.A. when I read this. I thought of Dr. Bob and Bill Wilson, two social outcasts (two nuts) who stood their ground. I am aware this morning of so many inspirational events that take place all around us. All we need is a little willingness to look around with the eyes of faith. I’ve seen a tiny flower break through pavement and burst forth into the sunlight. Does it give up and die, does it quit? No! It keeps on keeping on. That inspired me to break through some of my paved over gifts, out of my darkness into the Light. Spring releases it stored up energy bring forth new and renewed forms of life. In the spring the death rate goes down as we witness the gifts of spring. Springs awakens us to a love and gratitude deeper than words. Spring break is the correct name for this time in our lives. "Under the bitter snow is a seed which in the spring will become a rose." Come let us watch our love seeds break through into the Light. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.

I am reminded that everything and everyone that comes into my consciousness has a God-given purpose. Often I do understand it later; sometimes I never do understand its purpose.
