Good morning world!
A gift of another beautiful day! It is so amazing to look at the abundance before me…the sun, the sand, the ocean breeze, the waves.
Do any of them say, I’ll play it small today so the others can shine? Does the sun say, “ I won’t shine bright today so the waves have all the glory?” No, they all all shine their brightest and fullest creating so much gorgeous beauty. They elevate one another, enhancing each other’s beauty and value. What value would you give to each ( the sun, the sand, the breeze, the waves)? Would you give them all the same value or all different values? Is the breeze more or less important than the sun? NO! Is the sand worth more or less than the water? NO! Exactly! So why do we think by playing it small we help others? If we dim our light somehow we help others shine brighter? Does that make sense? NO! So what if you played big and so did everyone else? That would mean all of us would create beauty! We would enhance each other, lift each other up, realize the value in each other. WOW! We would realize that we are not in competition with each other, or better than another, but that we are all essential to create beauty in this world.
“ Let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise you heavenly Father” ( Matthew 5:16)
