Sitting on the beach, listening to the waves, feeling the warmth of the sunlight rays…….
Do you sea what I see?
“I don’t know; what do you see?”
The beauty of the sea is what I see!
“How can you see beauty in this world full of noise, negativity, the day turned to night and darkness.”
Just take a little walk, and see what the sea is all about!
People are so busy pointing out, looking at, and always finding problems they fail to look at the beauty all around and solutions found. They are always talking about dollars. We saw several on our walk today, and they brought lots of joy to those who saw them.
“They are not talking about the same kind of dollar, but I think I know what you are saying. It is time to focus on what is important in your life. What brings you joy? We have faced, are facing, and will continue to face difficulties. During these times, we need to find time to bring joy into our lives.”
Exactly! We need joy, peace of mind and hope. When we face challenges and difficulties we cannot make it harder on ourselves by adding to it. If we do that, we turn off the light that can help us see.
“I am glad you were able to show the sea to me as you see it. I hope others can see we all share this sea, and looking only at problems keeps the lights turned off in a time when we need to keep the lights turned on!”
Don’t turn off the lights, be the one to turn them on by shining a light on the positives and solutions.
“If we do not radiate the light of Christ around us, the sense of the darkness that prevails in the world will increase.”-Mother Teresa
