For 2018

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

This is from my Jewish friend. I think it's a good thing to meditate about today.

The Ark

There is a raging storm at sea.

There are hellish waves that crash and pound at the shore, carrying all away, leaving desolation behind.

The sea is the world of making a living.

The waves are the stress and anxiety of indecision, not knowing which way to turn, on what to rely.

Up and down, hot and cold -- constantly churning back and forth.

Do as Noah did and build an ark.

"An ark" in Hebrew is taiva -- which means also "a word."

Your ark shall be the words of meditation and of prayer.

Enter into your ark, and let the waters lift you up, rather than drown you with everything else.

He's not exactly meditating, but he is relaxed. Thanks for the comment. Chatty
