A Word Fitly Spoken
A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
There is a destiny that makes us brothers: none goes his way alone: All that we send into the lives of others Comes back into our own. ~ Edwin Markham ~ American Poet 1852-1940
Destiny: Event or course of events that will inevitably happen in the future; the ultimate agency that predetermines the course of events; overall circumstances or condition in life including everything that happens to you ~ Webster's Unabridged Dictionary
Destiny is often portrayed and held as a banner of excellence associated with someone else's' life, but at times overlooked in our own life. Assumed, that unless extraordinary achievements are recognized with great accolades, our Destiny is not as important as others. This is not rue.
Destiny is nurtured in the quiet moments of reflection and in the raucous moments of decision. For Destiny like a seed is ready to germinate and shoot forth in its own time. It sometimes yells to be heard and other times like a soft breeze, stirs the sleeping soul. But nevertheless Destiny is there all the time and ready to shower it's radiant surprises upon us all.
Within life, Destiny can be as simple and heartwarming as apple pie. It can produce a force that glows within the heart one moment, to be not realized the next. That's Destiny. It marks your life whether young or old or in-between. Maybe in a dozen small moments and maybe in one grand moment. But Destiny works it's grace upon us all as the seconds of our life pass in all its choices.
If not seen of the many, it is beheld within one's heart. Destiny often draws like a magnet in directions unplanned, only chosen. But most often in a quiet way Destiny awaits your choices. Destiny awaits your time. Your purpose. Your heart.
Destiny is after all, your response to life and life's response to you!
