I’m in a bit of a pensive mood tonight and finding myself the mid-shift Duty Officer, it seems as if I have the chance to get something up for us all to consider.
Life indeed hands us some unexpected and downright unpleasantness. Be not troubled because He who is really in control has a plan for all of us. Does it involve success, money, popularity and to be loved by all? Hardly. In fact the love of that someone special is all we really need. The twists and turns our lives take while disturbing to us, is just part of the plan that we have no ken for. Yes I do get angry at our Divine Creator at times, but it’s a human failing or perhaps a fault of our society that we demand to get what “we” want and right-fucking now! This I know, that He will never let us fall without a plan for something bigger and better for us, all in good time, let me repeat that, all in good time. Perhaps to rephrase what I’m getting at here would be something like this: “At this exact instant, do we have all that we really, really need?”
So the question I have for us in the wee hours of this morning in the Berkshires, is somewhat rhetorical in nature. Whatever the case might be at this moment, did we honestly expect to be here, now and where we are?
The best laid plans of mice and men indeed…….
I know I sure didn’t expect it to be this way, but dammitall I’m OK is the answer between my ears. I’ll be grateful for where I am and what I have today, because all is well in G-d’s Universe, He doesn’t make mistakes…..ever. We’re just bit actors in this play friends.
