“Seeing the good.
The beauty of our souls shines in many ways. The greatest of these is love.
In the spirit of loving kindness, every day a little ugliness is removed; our perspective on life grows broader and deeper.
In the spirit of love, our lives become fresher, our souls humbler; evil seems to disappear, and we learn to distinguish sinner from the sin.
Do I see the good in people?”
From Hazeldon’s “Day by Day”
I love that- every day a little ugliness is removed when I allow God to change my perspective. Not a lot has changed about the specific details on my life, or who I am…but a LOT has changed about my perspective this year.
I can apply this perspective of loving kindness to other people, but I can also express it towards situations, circumstances and myself. Changing my perspective is an aspect of my faith and trust in God and who He is.
