OUT OF FOCUS
I am not young, spry, strong, stable, and smart like you.
The photo above was taken hand held.
The photo below was taken with the same camera. Of
the same object, in the same light, only a couple of
minutes earlier. BUT, on a tripod.
THE DIFFERENCE IS HOLDING STILL.
Life is like that.
I know a "person" [Perhaps several] like that. This
person will not hold still long enough to truly hear.
Oh, this "person" says "Go on talking, I'm listening."
BUT, latter it comes out that person did not hear
what I was saying. What this person was clearly
told, was totally unknown to them later.
Are we like that with life?
So engrossed with what we are doing, or want to
do, that we do not know where we are going?
"Be still, and know that I am God."
(Psalms 46:10 RSV)
"Be still before the Lord, and wait
patiently for him;"
"Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil."
(Psalms 37:7 and 8 RSV)
Have you taken time to hold still and
take stock of yourself to see where your
life is taking you??
