we are all actors 
in a playwright's masterpiece
vying for the lead

only those who learn their roles
find joy being who they are

Today’s post is inspired by a post by Kenne Turner on his blog: Becoming is Superior to Being. Please follow the link to check it out.

These photos were taken on a walk at a nature center not too far from home. This series was snapped in less than a minute from about 30 feet back along the path. Please excuse the poetic license with the captions.

“Is Mom looking yet?”
“I got her this time!”
“Going back to other side”
“That’s far enough”
“Is she not looking?”
“Someone’s coming”
to be young again 
playing hide and seek with mom
innocent as babes

2015.06.25: the play

Blessed are those who do what is right,
whose deeds are always just. – Ps 106:3


if each of our lives were a play
who is the protagonist
is it the type of character we always wanted to be
did we write the script
are we acting to someone else’s scripting
who is directing us behind the scenes to make sure we stay true to our script
who selected our supporting cast
who will make our costumes and do our makeup
who are the invisible hands that make sure the stage is well set and timely lit
will they make us better or worse
who is our audience
how will we define our success
is our success determined by how many people we drew
does it depend on how much we can charge for each ticket
who will judge our performance
will we read the reviews in the paper
will we reflect on our performances with someone we trust
will we be satisfied when the curtain draws close
will we count ourselves blessed
