This week, in the wake of political and spiritual controversies, debates over magazine covers and articles, my mind has been reeling. I've been trying to find some real perspective. I think we all are. Yes, we all need it! Our community, our society, our nation needs to gain some real, true perspective on what's really important.
Two of my favorite bloggers, Stephanie Precourt and Lovelyn Palm, are featured in the clip below (and in my sidebar) and I hope that as you read and watch it you are dealt a blow to your heart and soul like I was today. We all need, once in a while, some glimmer of light to be shed on what is true and real in this life beyond just opinions and ideas (and I've got lots of 'em too!), and surface and shallow, and agenda and propaganda, and he said/she said, and blah blah blah. There is a Truth to be gained, you know? There are things that are real and right, and not just what we see on the surface or even what we think or believe down deep based on all of our knowledge and understanding. There are things bigger than all of us!
Here is a beautiful reminder of what it's all really about.
May we all strive to be better than we are, individually and as a whole. May we cease to point the finger, or make our own side heard even louder, just long enough to learn how to really LOVE.
Have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend, and hug your babies tight. Love them big.
