relationships

I read an interesting selection from  Gift From the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh.  She had some great insights about relationships and how they can sometimes be like the ocean, with both high & low tides.  In her writing, she talks about how we often want to cling to a relationship & how it felt in the past or how we sometimes look forward to the future of a relationship – both engaging activities.  If we aren’t careful, however, we can let the past or the future sabotage the now in any relationship, including our walk with God.  With that being said, sometimes we don’t like the now because it could be kind of like a “low tide” season, but Mrs Lindbergh helps me to see & appreciate that all the stages in a relationship are valid & valuable – high tide, medium tide & low tide.  In my mind, the most important thing of all is to remain faithful to God no matter what’s happening or not in our various human relationships 🙂

  1. OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG – I’m afraid we older ostriches aren’t aware of where the new relationships are headed to “text – land” as little communication as possible especially with respect for elders – “WHyyyyyyyyyy”
    will be the new battle cry as they lift their heads momentarilly from their hand held
    devices, saying “huh” because “what” takes to much energy.
    Take a good look around – there are exceptions, but I believe we need to re-evaluate honestly relationships. Smiles…oh and LOL.
