That’s a funny word…when you think about it.
What do we have to “transcend”?
All of this world?
But…some…a lot…most…of this world is a beautiful gift…to be trusted and appreciated and approved of.
I want to learn to pursue joy like I’m going down the whirlpool…going down to something good and true and constant.
I need to pursue joy like I have one breath left to do it….
I need to always be able to look into another person’s face and see God in their eyes…
We are here to love and to embrace…to welcome and comfort…not to endure or to fear the things around us.
If we really call ourselves “believers”…what do we have to fear?
There isn’t a wall high enough to protect us from our own fear and inability to understand our neighbor….
What a great responsibility…to understand the need to pursue the best option that God gave us!
And…maybe…someday….I’ll completely welcome Him.
“My whole heart”….?
