Your Deeds O Lord Have Made Me Glad
November 28, 2015 | Reflections from some of the nunsThe Farm
Your deeds O Lord have made me glad, for the work of Your hands I shout for joy.
This week I bring to you a treat. Yuijn has been happy snapping in the Vegie Patch and so I bring to you some of her photos. What struck me when I viewed these photos was that we all see the world through different eyes. Most of the time we think that others see situations as we do, but we each only have a partial view of the truth, or of a reality.
We need others don’t we? I thought I might try a ‘practice’ for this week. When I come upon a situation that gets my attention, or worse still gets my judgmental mind into critical mode, perhaps I could try to ask how might this other person see this situation, or hear it; or how might they feel? I have no doubt it would be completely different from my perception. Why not try asking another for their perspective?
Anyhow enjoy the photos of flowers on the ‘farm’.
Have a good week full of different perspective.
