Life and Living 2018-83
What is life all about, the living itself or instead what we have done during the living? Each of us have the same amount of hours in the day to live and do.
Some of that time is spent eating and, of course, sleeping. There is that thing called WORK too!
There is a multitude of other things that can take up our time, some quite fun, actually. I guess my next thoughts are meant for some and not for others.
What do we do that really means something to others? For instance: Is what we do only about ourselves? Do we just seek self-gratification and nothing else? Could we do something that means something to someone else instead? This thought process is like the saying about Christmas time. It is better to give than receive, but I believe many would not agree with that saying. Normal!
We all do the same things every day, without any additional thoughts. Some are repetitious and perhaps boring to a degree. Some have the little things that make it somewhat different, but, all in all, still the same.
BUT, if we were to have a concentrated effort on the OTHER, and not US, that might prove to be VERY interesting in the long term of things in life. Wouldn’t that be different?
The joy, the pleasure, the love and many other feelings that OTHER would have, might very well make our day one of immense pleasure to ourselves.
Coupled with that, I would think the feeling of satisfaction could be exquisite. Many hours, many opportunities to give and in return receive, with the knowledge that we do make a difference to another person in the process.
The hours add up and our live journey to the final bell and maybe we will hear the ring of a difference to someone who NEEDS our actions in life.
God is there to listen to our needs, our desires, our wants, for He is Aware, Active, Alive, and ALWAYS PRESENT. Can’t guarantee what will happen if you speak to Him, but He is there………………
