It is a beautiful day. Let us get out and play. Success and the Big Bless. How to make it so.
Beauty in everything
What makes a day good or bad?
How do we calculate a good day or a bad day? Do we bless each day or do we expect it to bless us. In the desert rainy days are beautiful. In the wetlands sunny days are beautiful.
But if we stop and think about it, those days belong to the area in which they occur. So it is not the weather that makes the day beautiful or blessed and it is not just the area.
Perhaps we could say that it is receiving that which is needed that makes the day. But of course that would mean that days where we do not receive what we need are not blessed and that is foolish thinking indeed.
There has got to be a way to make each day the perfect day. Probably there are many ways to that path of great days past and present.
Let us look at some of ourself to find a pleasing view of other
Do we know?
Do you know what makes a perfect day?
There was a man who got lost in the mountain woods and it began to snow. After a while he got very cold. No doubt he thought that it was beautiful out but he was beginning to get worried about his well being. The snow was landing on him and melting and making him more wet and more cold. Then at one point he was so cold that the snow stopped melting on him. The snowflakes that fell on him remained pure and frozen and light and truly different, each one. They were so beautiful that he could not brush them off.
Even though the snow seemed so cold at first the man came to realize that they were warmer than the air around him. And it a short while had covered him like a blanket. First he was a little anxious about that because snow had always seemed to be what was cold. And he worried that his mind must be losing touch with the reality he knew.
And then the darkness came which scared the man for it is always colder at night. And then the wind blew and this was bad for wind always makes things colder. But the man was covered in the snow and the wind did not make him colder. Then the wind blew away the clouds and because it was now dark the man could see the stars. Upon seeing the stars he knew exactly what direction to go to get home.
Could it be that the cold snow was warmer than the air. Could it be that darkness was the way to see a directions more clearly and could it be that the changes brought on by the wind are just what we need.
How clearly do we really see
That which is bad is just sometimes bad
Sometimes a big rain is just a big rain. And sometimes bad things happen. People live and so also they must die. We have blood running through us so that it is inevitable that sometimes we must bleed. If we can go fast we must accept that we can also crash hard. And these things must be taken seriously.
There is a small boy and his father makes him have 1hr of alone play time a day. While the boy is not really alone he learns to play by himself and be comfortable in his own skin. Sometimes the boy just plays in the dirt, but other times the dirt clods are power bursts that when thrown against the wall explode and save the castle. Sometimes the water hose creates a mighty river and sometimes the teddy bear makes an ouchy feel better.
If the small boy has the ability to make plain dirt into a toy, then certainly we have the power to make a bad thing into a good thing.
The joy of giving
Now here is where we sell you something.
Normally I think that the effort that goes into writing something like this should be filled at least in part on trying to get you to buy into something. Perhaps if this was a sermon we could get you to buy into a religion. Perhaps we could get you to buy a self help book. Or maybe join up for daily inspirationals.
So let us be real clear as to what is being sold here. That seems fair enough.
An idea. This author loves to sell ideas. Not what to do with them or how to get them but just ideas. Someone once said that copyrighting what you write is really important. I thought hard on that and can see the point. But perhaps sometimes it is better not to. Perhaps if sometimes we give ideas away for free we will get some in return for free.
Did you know that children give their parents love for free?
I do know for a fact that some people for some reasons appreciate each day a little more than a whole lot of us.
We all know that some days are better than others. But perhaps we should all note that usually how the day unfolds is not up to the weather or others. It is up to us.
