Creation

I’m sitting on a balcony overlooking a bay. The sun is out, the water is blue. You can shut your eyes and still picture being at a beach. The seagulls sing. All of this is a part of creation.

As I think about it though, so is Covid, the flu, etc. I can choose to think about the negative aspects of these viruses, or I can choose to focus my attention somewhere else. The negative aspects of Covid are in our faces everyday thanks to social media and the news outlets. It takes work to find things that are positive.

As I sat outside watching the water and thinking about creation, Shannon (the BFF of my story) told me about how she was considering making bags she could donate to the shelter for battered women. In each bag she would put a note. Imagine opening a bag and you see a note that says “You’re a Bad Ass!! You’ve got this!!”. In this case, it’s creation made by Shannon.

It occurs to me that creation and creativity is something that we all most likely have time to play with nowadays. Self quarantine kind of forces us to find something to do. So instead of gorging out on another bag of chips or telling the kids to play another video game, go outside the norm. What if they sold lemonade and gave the money to someone in need? What if you found a way that you could make a difference? I recently read about a man who decided he was going to make 1 million people happy ‘ if only for a moment. Now that would be pretty cool.

Creation can be seen as a gift from God. Im looking at it, and it can be something that you do for others. Take some time today to do something that will dim the negativity we’re all looking at. Time to turn the power on!
