From Where We Are Standing

Looking at something from a different perspective can make all the difference. Often, we tend to see or believe something from a certain point of view and find it difficult to look at it any other way. We begin to close our mind to other possibilities. We become firm in our beliefs.

Sometimes, what we believe is less than the reality of the situation. Sometimes, what we believe is wrong. The ability to see the situation from a different perspective and to have an open mind to other options is wise. A step in one direction or the other can make all the difference.

First One Up

It’s 40 degrees outside a chilly 57 degrees inside. You are the first one up. You will get a fire going to warm things and fix the morning coffee.

You wonder what it will be like when winter does arrive.

You are thankful for what you have…food, shelter, clothing. To a wealthy man, you are poor…in the eyes of a homeless man, you are wealthy.

You smile as the room begins to warm…the first sip of coffee tastes good.

It is the beginning of another day and you are here to see it. Morning light is beginning in the east and soon the sun will help bring warmth to the day. You smile…it’s not so bad being the first one up.

This is a day that the Lord has made and for food, shelter and clothing you are content. You, of all, are the wealthiest…you have found peace within.
