In church last week the pastor image was talking about the fact that there is a plan for each of us. And that we do not become successful or achieve anything by ourselves. He asked us to look at a photo, similar to this one, and he asked..what do you know about this turtle.

1) He did not get up there by himself

2) He can not get down by himself

3) It is lonely at the top .

In various experiences we go through in life, we need to stay focused on the fact that “we”are not where the focus needs to be. The focus needs to be on others, on God, on life.

At work, at school, at home, one does not get places alone. Someone helped along the way. And if we were totally alone, there would be no top to go to. As the saying goes.. “If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there, did it make a sound?”

We are all children of a God, it is what I believe, and our life on earth is a minute part of our being, I believe that too. We need to remember, when we are on that fence post, we need others to help us get off, and we can see how others helped us to get there. God gives us the freedom to choose. With that freedom, choices are made, and sometimes good things happen, and sometimes not so good things happen. My thoughts are here for you. CIndy
