Reminders

Flyers face downdrafts,

Things that send them plummeting from the skies.

This week

They hit,

The downdrafts.

They were all minor.

That makes it worse.

How can I succumb

To such minor challenges?

A slow computer

When I could simply use my husband’s.

A mild virus

When so many suffer from

Debilitating diseases and chronic conditions.

Lack of motivation

When family and clients alike are not pressuring me.

A cold house

When so many have no shelter from the elements.

Expressions of concern

When vast numbers have no-one who cares for them.

Responsibilities

When I have the wherewithal to accomplish

What needs to be done.

Times of…

Stress.

Anger.

Depression.

Reminders that anything good in me

Is not because of some innate value

But divine grace.

I must cling to that truth

And once again

Take to the skies.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come…(2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV),
