Stuff

They forgot his works and the wonders that he had shown them. (Psalm 78:11 ESV)

“It’s so easy to look around and notice what’s wrong.” (Melody Beattie)

These two sentences struck me today. How easy it is to forget. How easy it is to notice what’s wrong.

I haven’t been blogging. I have ideas, and then they fizzle out. I wanted to get back to prompts and inspiration. I wanted to wax eloquent about the changing of seasons, or to lament my lack of motivation.

Instead, I’m going to pose a question to myself, and to you:

What’s right? With you? With life? With the world we live in?

And then I’m going to leave you with some stuff.

Some photos that could be categorized as “something is wrong,” or maybe not. What if we looked at these photos and asked, “What is right? What is good? What evidence of abundance can I find?”

And just a little more stuff to ponder…

I wanted to share the final post in the pilgrimage series 

and Sylvia’s reflection on the art piece I shared last week.

And one last quote: “The purpose of negativity is usually annihilation.” (Melody Beattie, The Language of Letting Go)

Don’t forget it’s okay to dialogue with me or the quotes, photos, etc. Agree or Disagree. Make your argument, it’s good for the soul!

  1. Kel: Here are my thoughts on the pictures.

    Picture one has faint but new life in it.
    Picture two shows someone has been working on projects.
    Picture three has the promise of new life among the evidence of winter.
    Picture four shows someone has made the effort to work in a flower bed, getting ready for spring.
    Not certain about picture five.
    Picture six shows the efforts of the gardener and possible the finished product of a gardner who cleaned up the garden.

    Blessings to you and yours.

    1. Love these responses…I put in picture Five bkz not sure everyone agrees that “pain is temporary” and it just made me think…the rest of the quote on truck says: quitting is forever… And I guess the photo begs the question does it belong with the others…but I just like the composition of the subjects in the photo too

I love a dialogue. Be the first to start a discussion!
