Special and unique

“Dear Friends,
Isn’t it amazing that each one of us, and all creation, is unique and special to God.
With my love and prayers,

This latest Picture Tweet from Joyce, with the quotation from Margaret Mead, is saying something very simple and very profound.

You don’t need me to tell you that our world is in a mess right now. There are huge problems Internationally and more locally.  The News is generally depressing and it’s easy to feel dispirited and overwhelmed.

So, all the more reason to look at the uniqueness of creation and all the wonderful things that are happening as Spring reveals itself once again.
We are all a significant part of that revealing so we can contribute uniquely to a new direction for our world.
A friend, Bishop Jack Nichols, commenting on the state of things, prays: ‘God Bless this Mess’.
We do that best if we are ourselves a blessing to the world.
We are such a blessing because of what Joyce reminds us about our being special and unique to God.
But don’t rely on what I say, or what Joyce says. Much  more importantly believe what God says. Believe it and live out its truth in your life.
In Isaiah 43 verse 1, we read.

But now, thus says the Lord,
He who created you …
He who formed you …
Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name,
You are Mine !!!
