Some people plant legacies. Some people carve legacies. Some people build legacies. Walking or cycling down the Duff Roblin trail, it is easy to appreciate and celebrate the amazing things people achieve in a lifetime. Some days I feel I'm too old to be able to achieve anything worthwhile anymore and then I'll meet someone almost thirty years older who is still producing good worthwhile work and I have to rethink my ideas of age and productivity. Did I also mention that this person was very humble? Although retired from the police force for over twenty years already, he is still teaching classes, staying physically active, and doing a little detecting along the gravel path just out of sheer habit. Isn't that impressive? So, the next time you're out and about and think you're just getting your exercise in a wide open space which is really work that should be honoured by a word like legacy... well, maybe you too will meet one. I'm starting to sense that there are a number of them that are still very active.
life is a miracle.

a blessing. I wish I could fix things for people who are having difficulties and sometimes I don't always feel like I have helped enough... I just hope that listening and caring to listen will make another's day sweeter.
You know what's really sweet? Listening to someone who is having things fall into place in their life like sweet dew from heaven. That is a rare treat... and something to celebrate. So, today, I wish for each person, their perfect life traveling partner.
I hear it can happen!

And, even if I don't imagine I will do this..., if I cry for you, I have entered the sacred place of intimacy where I don't rule. God does.
Why does God bring us to those places for others?
I think I know the answer.
It is to see people freed up, and looking so relaxed and so young, it just amazes me every time I see it. It happened this morning. I don't really know this individual much at all but when I saw that face this morning, I thought,... wow... that face looks ten years younger and completely freed up. That is one beautiful thing to experience.
