Pride — A Reflection

January 24, 2020

When you walk with one you love

One who has lost so much in the past two-plus years

It causes one to pause and reflect

Thankful for the love shown

Thankful for the continued presence

Thankful to be there for him

Thankful for the precious memories we share

As some might say, including me

Getting older can sometimes be a struggle

Watching someone you love age, can also be a struggle

Yet in the midst of it all, love is shared

When this happens, pride goes out the window

This brings me full circle to Thomas Merton

In his book, No Man is an Island, he says the following:

Pride makes us artificial and humility makes us real.

Lord guide us all through such struggles and the Valleys of the Shadows we encounter

Lord, through the power of your Spirit, make us real ❤️❤️
