It’s bigger than that

I have received some really nice compliments this week and on my walk this morning, I kept thinking that this responsibility was HUGE and I didn’t know if I could handle it.  But everything that has come my way, has come for a reason and I have to trust that reason.  When something hits us like a PUMA. something we never saw coming but connects with us in such a way that we are stunned that someone almost knew what we were thinking, we have to pay attention to it.  It tells us something.  It confirms everything and reminds us that it is bigger than that.  It has to be.  It makes us go places in our hearts we thought no one would ever find…tose place that we had safely hidden from the world.  But eventually like all things that are lost, they get found.  We rejoice in their new-found discovery, but we really knew they were there all along.  I have always loved the waterfall and how the water gently caresses the rocks and moves the underlying gravel and polishes the pebbles with its current and minimal force.  We are bigger than we are.  We are more than we are.  When someone told me that she could not fathom the blessing that I am bringing to her, I was taken aback by just how much that mean to her.  Because this is not about me.  It is much, much bigger than that.
