Yesterday the paper read, “Tomorrow and the next day the fog should lessen.” So when I got up this morning ready for work the fog was all around. Visibility was very limited. But didn’t the paper say, “lessen?” Sure didn’t look like less to me. James 4:14 notes, “Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.”
Cesar Chavez prayed, “Show me the suffering of the most miserable, so I will know my people’s plight. Free me to pray for others, for you are present in every person. Help me take responsibility for my own life, so that I can be free at last. Grant me courage to serve others, for in service there is true life. Give me honesty and patience, so that the Spirit will be alive among us. Let the Spirit flourish and grow, so that we will never tire of the struggle. Let us remember those who have died for justice, for they have given us life. Help us love even those who hate us, so we can change the world. Amen”
Point? We have no idea what tomorrow will bring and on top of that we don’t have too many tomorrows. So make the most of today. Have the courage, the wisdom to stand for something or someone. Don’t waste the little time you have. Hold a hand, lift someone up and help them through this “mist” we call life. You can do this and honestly you need to do this.
See you on the path and stick together because its foggy out there!
