This women saw maize kernels on the ground spilled from sacks of maize. She saw this was food to be gathered maybe for one or two meals. I saw a poor woman picking up small bits of food off the ground and felt sad for her. She saw there was hope for some food, no matter where it was found. Looking through lenses of the possible instead of impossibilities we find a different outcome.
Our friend Ruben often said, “don’t always talk about all the bad things happening. (and he experienced much that was bad) There is lots of bad news but there is lots of good. We need to share good news. That is what helps us to be encouraged and have faith and hope for the future.”
It is good to be aware of what is happening around us but our opinions don’t change anything. Prayer does.
