Daring to Live

I found it hard to get going today. I even felt a little sorry for myself.

Then I came across one of my favorite bits of wisdom, from Helen Keller:  “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.”

She’s right, of course. Even on the slow, sad days, life is an adventure. For one thing, we don’t know what will come next; the variables in the universe continually cause things to shift.

For another, if we let God lead, new life comes.

I have great opportunity today–to communicate with and work with and pray with good people, to feel the joy of Tigger and others feeding hungry people, to learn something I didn’t know yesterday, to share hugs with friends, to listen for God, to eat good food, to snuggle with Jonathan at the end of the day . . .

What daring adventure are you on today?
