Perpetual, ME Newsletter, Vol. 3, Issue 44
According to Webster’s Dictionary, perpetual can be defined as blooming almost continually throughout the season or year.
I wish the season of thanks was a perpetual one. I wish I could freely point out on a daily basis all the good things worth saying aloud as opposed to enduring the repeated grumbled muttering of all that is bad. The thing is, no one seems to want to hear that. They’re looking for unhappy agreement, strength in disgruntled numbers.
I tend to hold my breath in the midst of gripers and spouters. I guess I’m just not willing to ingest all that pollution. I need to remind myself to keep breathing, because...
If you’re breathing, you’ve got the chance to do great things. Not necessarily great big things… just great things. Like hand out a compliment, or give a grateful smile, or offer a sincere handshake for no reason except that you’ve encountered another person walking this earth, and they’re struggling, too.
Let’s be an active part of GOD’s repetitive beauty.
Let’s not wait for spring to bloom. Let’s be evergreens.
Let’s do it now, perpetually, through the fall and the long winter ahead.
