This was a meditation suggestion this week. How I wish I could remember this longer than 24 hours. I'm working on it!
The process of living, for each of us, is pretty similar. For every gain, there is a setback. For every success, a failure. For every moment of joy, a time of sadness. For every hope realized, one is dashed.
The balance of events in our lives is much like the balance of nature. The pendulum swings; every extreme condition is offset by its opposite, and we learn to appreciate the gifts ...of the bad times as well as the periods of rest.
On occasion we'll discover that our course in life has changed direction. We need not be alarmed. God will take care of our every concern, every detail of our lives will be taken care of, in the right way, at the right time.
We can develop gratitude for all conditions, good or bad. Each has its necessary place in our development as healthy, happy people. We need the sorrows along with the joys if we are to gain new insights. Our failures keep us humble; they remind us of our need for the care and guidance of God and others. And for evey joy dashed, we can remember, one will be realized.
Life is a process. I will accept the variations with gratitude. Each, in its own way, blesses me.
