Make A Difference…A Ripple At A Time

Few will have the influence to bend history itself; but each of us, in our daily interactions, can create a tiny ripple of hope. Those ripples, crossing each other from millions of different centers of energy, write the daily history of our fellow human beings. And thus we make a difference.
Bobby Kennedy

This struck me yesterday…a lazy Saturday, a time for the Cubs to be blown out by the hated Mets [Hey, I remember 1969!] and the lawn looking country club attractive. The lawn is the responsibility of Mario and his crew.

I know. I’ve shared the Bobby Kennedy quote. But it now speaks to me, so I share on this Sunday morning. Time to get to church. Church, especially through worship and pastoral visitation, knows how life is effective and valued.

Asking for each of us to be civil, to be of kind regard to others and to know the day well lived beats any day scorning and whining and sulking.

Okay, preachy…I take that prerogative.

Live life…one ripple at a time….


About Mark H Miller

Diane and I live in Leander, Texas. This past June 17, 2015 I celebrated the 49th anniversary of my ordination. We returned to Texas after three years in Washington, during which I served as interim minister in Bellevue/Eastgate and Mercer Island. Am planning to begin a 5th novel that will have my protagonist, Tricia Gleason, serve a year in licensed ministry in Snoqualmie, Washington. The novel, "The Lemon Drop Didn't Melt," will find Tricia wrestling with ministry challenges. None of which more daunting than someone wanting her breathing to stop. All the published novels are available on Amazon and Amazon Kindle under Mark Henry Miller. A primary goal in our return to Texas is to make sure grandchildren get lots of attention--here and in Chicago and Washington, D.C. Traveling is definitely an activity that will not slow down. With that, of course, fishing will happen. To that the t-shirt is apt, "I fish; therefore I am." In addition to novels, the book of Blogs, "Voice Of My Heart," is also available on Amazon.
