Good Morning, God!
I knew that each snowflake was unique — but grains of sand? I’m amazed! And delighted! These grains of sand are beautiful. But, the thing is, God, that it takes a very powerful microscope to see — and photograph — them. So, it is no surprise that I’ve always seen grains of sand as identical.
It is tempting to think that people — all 7 billion or so — are pretty much identical. It is just “easier” to assume that other people are pretty much like us. That’s my default assumption. Hmmm. And I hold to this illusion, in spite of growing up in a family filled with diversity — in spite of my being married for many years to a person fundamentally different from me. Ah yes, God! Gender differences!
Sigh, yes, You do love surprises. And I do have “miles to go before I sleep.” So much learning and growing left to do. So much interacting with other grains of sand. Are we ever done, God? Or is “done” a finite human concept?
Hmmm. Perhaps, it would be better for me to focus on the beauty and uniqueness of the grains around me? Please help me, God!
