“Good Friday is a day of hope. It is a day we look forward to a brighter tomorrow. Many things have happened to change the course of our lives, but it has not shaken our faith.”–Dr. Peola Hicks
I was at Walgreens picking up a prescription when I looked up and realized just how beautiful blue the sky was. I grabbed my phone and popped off this picture..the sky, Sears Tower, Old St. Pats…all seemed to line up for a great shot. Just as I took the shot…the truck baring the message, Jesus Christ Is Lord…zoomed along 90/94 and into my shot. I was focused on the composition, but God had a little reminder for me also. I looked at the photo and smiled.
Where do we get the messages or gentle reminders to stay focused on what’s important in our lives. It could be a message from the church pulpit, or a book we are reading, but it can be any where if we are paying attention. I find signs of love daily in my walks in the form of hearts, or billboards, shop windows, puddles, rocks. I realize these “moments” are not chance occurrences in my life, but messages I am to share with others.
“Church” can be done in the produce department at Jewel, buying a cup of coffee at Starbucks, walking under a train viaduct or over the Kinzie Street bridge, while swimming or walking on the beach. Stay opened for your messages of love, faith and joy.
May you have a blessed weekend, Happy Easter to you all. Peace out for now.
