What does salvation mean to you?
Does it involve lengthy intervals in a place of worship, asking forgiveness for a myriad of sins?
Or maybe it’s something more ephemeral, more elusive?
What if “salvation” is all about the fact that we wake up each day, watching the sun come up? What if salvation doesn’t actually require that effort, but just participation and appreciation?
Every day we get a chance to start again, to do good, to be better than the day before.
What a gift!
You DO have choices. Sometimes you get so mired in the quicksand of “daily life” that it gets really hard to see those choices, but they are there.
The choices define you, and they help define your idea of “salvation”.
What if you decide today that everything is going to be wonderful, that you’re going to have a perfect day, no matter what anyone else does or says? It will happen just as you expect it.
Remember today that it’s Spring! Time for renewal, for birth (or rebirth), for the sun to rise and shine without any effort on your part.
Enjoy the day! It’s a gift! Wrapped in sunlight, tied with a ribbon of rainbow, made up just for you. Be “saved”. Take time to appreciate the fact that you are alive! And have a lovely day!
