Perspective — Extending Mine

Good Afternoon, God!

One of the lovely things about having a dear friend visit is that I get nudged out of my ruts. Today I set out with my friend, Lani,  to go to a scheduled pot luck luncheon. We stopped for food at Whole Foods and as we arrived at our destination I began to wonder . . . was THIS the day for the potluck?

It wasn’t. The luncheon is tomorrow. Ah, well, I said — let us go and switch sites and picnic overlooking Hanauma Bay. Once again as we drew near I wondered . . . isn’t it CLOSED on Tuesdays?

It was. Hmmm. But, I gathered myself and said, let’s go sit on a bench at Sandy Beach and eat our lunch there! So we DID! And we even saw a little blue sky! It was enough that it wasn’t raining! I was grateful. Lani was grateful too, as she had flown in Monday from Indiana, rejoicing in being Delivered from the Snowy Hand of Winter!

I sometimes think. God, that Life is mostly about Perspective.

Speaking of Perspective. earlier today I was reading a BBC World News article about the evictions going on in Spain. It seems you can be evicted after missing just one or two payments on a 30 year mortgage. Even after being evicted, you have to keep paying on the loan AND plus penalties. That seems MORE than WRONG, God! Don’t you have something to say about that kind of behavior  in the Bible?

Several years ago we “bought” a friend out of Credit Card Hell. She paid us back at a higher interest rate than our money had been getting — which was still 1/5 of what she had been paying. We both won.

Surely, God, the Rights of Ordinary People must be kept in balance with the rights of Corporations. Government, itself, depends on the consent of the Governed! We should ALL remember that . . . and act . . .  and pray . . . accordingly.
