Life can be overwhelming.
No secret there.
Today, may we all be able to discern what we can do and what we are powerless to do.
And may any glimpse of wisdom help us find solace in an Earthly world that will always have stormy weather.

Do we? Do they?
Exiting the GEICO parking garage the first person he sees is a man pushing a shopping cart full of aluminum cans and other things.
Next thing he knows, he’s inside the Amway Center, center court.
He silently, and continuously prayed (like many of us do) for everyone he came in contact with.
And as he writes this, he wonders if homeless people silently pray for everyone they come in contact with.
A friend said she has another book idea. The conversation lasted 30 minutes. The one memorable item was when she mentioned she doesn’t know what it feels like to be homeless.
The immediate thought was that society defines homeless as someone without a roof over their head.
What about the spiritually homeless?
What’s missing isn’t a physical roof, what’s missing is a loving roof over their head.
Sure they have shelter, but they desperately yearn for reassurance and hope.
Do not carry this very far.
It’s too heavy.
Way too heavy.
Do not look back.
Only look forward.
And know it won’t be long until you will have another opportunity to help someone less fortunate.
Spend the night as a homeless person, sleeping in a cardboard box?
How about 6-10pm on a Friday night as a compromise?
And then return home to our own bed, opulent by homeless standards, no?
Wealth is relative, and generous, and mostly has nothing to do with money or status.
