Can be a gift.
Can be “oh, no, more of the same old.”
What I figure, expression of experience, no day is fully redundant. Each day has its own realities. Not reality but realities.
Sure. There are themes and routines. I remember a sermon from Bill Coffin when he made it clear a function/purpose of living: “Redeem the routine. Let the routine matter.”
On today, when my hearing gets checked…frustrating to others when my request for them to say it again happens, more than once in the same sentence. My audiologist knows so much. I’m counting on my hearing challenge reducible. We’ll see. Or. We’ll hear better. I hope.
Still, my brother-in-law, Dale. The wise one who makes incredibly beautiful butterflies and custom cars…talk about versatility…shared this on Facebook.
A partner, I believe, to “when one window closes another will open.” I like this about doors. Like it a lot.
A word of counsel to use the metaphor of a door to keep life happening…and hopefully with resolve, energy and purpose. Here goes. And. I hope fervently, so do you! Keep on keeping on, no matter the doors:
There’s more today…I mentioned Dale’s creativity. So impressive. I conclude the blog with his two butterflies. More than beautiful. Powerful. Reminds me of how these butterflies and the door can be metaphorically valued. Has to do with mentality. We can make the door a wall and decide to give up or in. And, as a good preacher once said about our own future, “Don’t be like the caterpillar who looked up at the butterfly and said, ‘You won’t find me flying in one of those!’”
Nope. Life. For. Me. For. You. For us. Doors and butterflies…for a Thursday, for every dawning day.
