OUR INNER

C MPASS I have never been thrilled to find a pickle in my burger, sandwich or simply as a side. I should be. We all should be counting more of the blessings we take for granted. Like having a healthy breakfast or a safe bed to sleep in or an orange.

Where EVERYONE Is Welcome!! SERVICE 10 AM May 25, 2014

One orange provides 130 percent of our vitamin C needs for the day. And just look at a fresh orange. The color: alive, winsome, beautiful. The packaging: practical, efficient, easy to access and safe. How can anybody enjoy an orange and remain an atheist? There are idiot lights on my dashboard of daily life. Idiot lights warn us that something is wrong. Idiot lights tell us it is time to check with a good mechanic. For example: ingratitude is a flashing warning light that I am heading for trouble. Irritability is another. Flashes of anger are like a fire alarm shattering the silence. Fire alarms save lives. But we have to pay attention to them. Life is like that. We can so easily ignore the idiot lights. We take things for granted, things like a good, crisp pickle or a refreshing, chilled orange or a safe home or a good breakfast. We need reminders of how good we have it lest we drift into complacency and entitlement. I’m talking to me. Listen to the kids. Andy wrote: “I liked the apple best.” Another child wrote: “I love pickles. You are terrific.” There are children in our communities who go to school without breakfast and some without lunch. WestWinds gets to help out and what a privilege. Thank you for making this ministry possible. These needy kids are a reminder of how good we have it and of how easy it is to take our blessings for granted. Like a good pickle.
