The compasses that guide us…

It seems only fitting, given my beliefs and aspirations, that the first blogpost I have written this year is about…Faith and Family. As the Marquise de Sevigne said…”We cannot destroy kindred, our chains stretch a little sometimes…but they never break.” These are the ties that need to be cultivated with time…effort…imagination…patience and…love…often, on a fairly on-going basis…and all to good avail….

I feel that at the beginning of each New Year, these feelings are really more at the fore, the sense of a renewal of faith…life…opportunities…chances, prompts us to want to help cultivate more loving…caring and flourishing relationships…with family and friends…as also to better the relationship and effort with our work…interests…and above all…our relationship with the Good Lord! 

Our moral…emotional…spiritual compass is so much more active and alert at this point of time…the New Year seems a new beginning. Intentions…resolves are so much more emotionally and mentally charged…carrying this onwards at a more sustainable pace is hoped for…but often, like many good resolves, there is slowing down of effort, sometimes due to lack of result…feedback…visible or desirable outcomes and effects. What we often forget is, that the Good Lord does answer our prayers…only sometimes the answer is…Not Yet. Accepting His blessings with humility and accepting that as in all relationships, constancy…perseverance…continuity of effort…tenacity of resolve, is of the essence, and to be worked towards…the prayer is as always, for the Good Lord’s grace…
