Catching Fireflies - 2
Patsy Clairmont: “Have you ever noticed how invigorating dawn light skipping across wooden floors is?...Morning births opportunities. I like that. Because some days become sullied, and I find it encouraging to know that within hours, a new day will unfold with a potential fresh start…God’s mercies [compassion] are new every morning. I think we don’t begin to ‘catch’ His mercies because it’s so easy, at least for me, to be focused on what’s not working. This is a broken planet; we don’t have to look far for troubles…may God remind us of His mercy toward us, which is bestowed anew every day, just as sure as the sun rises and shines its light on us.
‘The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.’ Proverbs 4:18
Tomorrow is a new day, fresh with God’s mercies. May we purpose to catch a basketful of compassion and extend it to others.”
