Yin and Yang = the balance
It is my birthday - I'm 55. I consider that a good thing. It is cold and dreary outside, as it often is on my birthday, but other parts of the country are dealing with life-threatening blizzards. This got me to thinking about how I'd grumbled, even though I had it better than thousands of others.
Next thing you knew, I thought about some people I'd come in contact with recently, and their lives. It led me to the thought of yin and yang, the ancient symbol that reminds us of good and bad, hot and cold, male and female... in other words, the balance within life.
And you know how it is once I get to thinking... I start writing. It got so long that even "I" decided it was too long! It was supposed to be here, on this blog, but my thoughts developed as I wrote and it soon let me know it was not just a comment on life. It was a part of my Lenten Journey, so there it shall go. It will be interesting to see how this leads me, whether just to grow, or perhaps, to do.
You'll be "grateful" to learn that I divided it into two parts. They are scheduled to be posted on Saturday and Sunday. I hope you'll read and consider what I share, as perhaps it might influence you to do some thoughtful musing as well.
You can go to my Lenten Journey via this link or using the tab at the top of the page under the header.
