Things that seem bad, but turn out for the better. It reminds me of an old proverb..."Who's to say what's good or bad." It is a story about a couple neighbors. When they meet at their fence, one would say..."My Son broke his arm" The other would say, "Oh! That's bad!" "Who's to say what's good or bad?" The next time they meet the man says, "The Military came to take my Son to war, but they didn't cause his arm is broke" "Oh! That's good!" And it goes on like that for a while.
It is the story I think of when something happens that could be bad. It reminds me to find the good in it. Look for the seed of wonderful hidden in all the junk.
Sometimes things need to break down so when it is 'rebuilt' it can be better. Stronger.
Anyway, when something happens...I am hopeful that the end result will be for the good. That is the hopeful romantic again. I am finding THAT is the part that keeps coming out. The romantic.
Give my life meaning and purpose. Show me the next right action and the give me the eyes to see it. That is my prayer for all of you in this Holiday season. Show me how to help make this something special for the highest good for all concerned. (Myself included)
