I met one of the most beautiful ladies recently. She is lovely with a gentle nature. When she talks, life radiates from her eyes. She’s a good conversationalist and well-educated. Her spirit is meek and kind. She has had many experiences in her life & been blessed with opportunities to work in many fields (that I often found interest in my younger days). Her eyes sparkle when she smiles and she has no idea she is special. She loves the Lord and knows him well.
Who is this beaming woman of whom I write? She’s a new friend that lives close by. I am blessed to have met her. I don’t think it was a coincidence we met either. She makes me happy when we talk or get to spend time together and I think I needed this. Although she smiles, there is pain there as well. Who doesn’t carry some of that with them, right? Somehow her inner sadness touches my heart and I pray for her gentle spirit to be healed.
When life seems bleak, how do we cope? When the lights go out and we are alone, where does the mind go for comfort? Those who are gifted seek out positivity to remind themselves how beautiful life can be. They hold tightly to Hope. Embracing it and seeking signs of it around each corner. They know that their Faith leads them there – to Hope of all things. It’s that same Faith that tells them they are worth loving. Faith that they know our Savior loved us enough to die for us. Love that they know they are deserving of.
But… what of those without this gift? The gift that helps them continually seek out encouragement? Where do they go in their mind when they are swimming in doubt? I scares me to think about it.
Where do you go for your uplifting dose of inspiration? Is it a person, place, thing or a website?
