A Change of Perspective

Diamond Head from the ocean

Diamond Head from the ocean

Good Evening, God!

I had a wonderful day today — playing with my new waterproof camera. How good to “capture” the light on the water while I was IN the water!And photographing Diamond Head from the ocean was a delightful change of perspective.

But, I just got news that my Godson is very sick. And  that has truly changed my perspective!

It is, after all, People who are important! People who matter.

All else is Stuff.

How is it that we forget that, God? How is it that I failed this year to send my Godson a Christmas /Birthday gift? How is it that I failed to remind him that he is loved?

Dang! I love a lot more people than I “show forth” love to. And now I feel the pain of that.

One of my favorite quotes is from Mother Teresa, who said: “There is more hunger in the  world for Love and Appreciation than for bread.” Two of my friends laughed at that and said hungry people want food! And of course, they do. Still, each one of us also hungers to know that we matter. That we matter not just to You, God, but to one or two fellow human beings.

I know that in my Head. I know it in my Heart. Now, please, God, help me to live it out in small and frequent concrete actions. But far more importantly, God, please heal my Godson!

    I am sorry that your godson is so sick. God has given us bodies that can often heal themselves, given the right set of conditions. I am doing all I can to help my body heal naturally. Experiencing God’s amazing creation underwater and taking photos and videos is one of my favourite things in the world – enjoy! Love and bubbles, PT xxx http://www.pinktankscuba.com
