And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. (Genesis 1:31a)
The last couple times I’ve used my camera phone a message pops up reminding me that I can’t take a picture because the storage is full. I could download those several hundred photos to free up space, but I just don’t make the time.
Or I could just delete photos as I go, but I am afraid I might lose some of the goodness. As I scrolled through the pictures, gratitude welled up in my heart. I will not post them all here, because they wouldn’t necessarily evoke the same gratitude for you. You’ll have to scroll through your own phone for that.
This has been a year of transition and celebration. And as we enter the holidays, I sense the need for reflection.
One of my ideas for the season ahead is to keep my eyes open for sightings of goodness in the land of the living. (And to capture them with my phone, of course!)
Here’s a little prayer I prayed in my journal this morning:
You are good! You always intend good. I will trust your goodness. Help me to be good and to choose good paths. Help others to live good lives filled with your goodness. Thank you for creating us, and declaring us “very good!”
What sightings of goodness have you witnessed lately?
