Another Famous Bernie
Yesterday my wife, who like most all of us and perhaps more so than some has her struggles with worry, doubt, happiness, and faith, shared with me a favorite Bernie quote, Bernie Siegel not the other one. The ever positive inspiring Bernie shared a paraphrase of the Twenty Third Psalm that he had written in a darker period in his life. Before you get upset with it, true believers, give it a serious look.
I believe God gets blame for a lot of crap and perhaps credit as well too for stuff that He/She/We are equally responsible for. That is what I see most playing out in Bernie’s version of the Twenty Third Psalm. One does not have to look too hard or too far to see the troubled side of life and often it may take some conscious effort to stay on the sunny side and not stray into the shadows. We have all been down that road and it is no fun with no sun and no one to comfort us. But, I believe that in every case that is just illusion, the God’s truth being that surely goodness and mercy have and shall follow us all the days of our lives and we shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever and not in the basement but in a beautiful penthouse apartment of our own, perhaps right next door to a Bernie maybe even two.
Your friend and fellow traveler,
Encouraging you to:
Keep On The Sunny Side
