The Big Picture

The big Picture, Can you see it yet? No not that one it, it is too small, Not that either, It is only a mirror mage of yourself. Still cannot see it? Then you are not thinking big enough, Searching wide enough, Or long enough. Try thinking of something big, Bigger than you, Bigger than your expectations for yourself, Something so big, It might not include you. Can you see it now? The one you have been helping paint, All your life. If you really can see it now? You may still have time, To paint over the legacy, You were going to leave your children, And replace it with something that has a brighter hue. Something that they can't talk their eyes off, Something to stop them from dropping the ball, Something that will draw them into the big picture, Something so big, Something so wonderful, It gives them a reason, To look away from the mirror And stop them taking so many selfies. Something to make them want to start right away, On painting their own legacy into the big picture, Now they have have the means to paint, Because you refrained from buying that extra beer, Or shut the door on the drug dealer who keeps you, From seeing the bigger picture.

A very good work to express what our lives have been or what they could be. If I look back at my life it is far from perfect, but it is what happened and my reaction to what happened. I am glad that God knows all, understands all, and forgives all. I enjoyed reading this one today. Sara

Thank you so much Sara. Sometimes even a very small change can have big benefits. Also once one realises that that being there for others when they need you is pretty cool and part of Gods Plan. A change of diet can also work wonders for some. Diet for children and brain development is crucial. Hope you are looking forward to the coming week. David in NZ

Change certainly is good. Love the concept. Look beyond your circumstances. See the bigger picture. That's good!

Thanks for that Valerie. The pen in the writing of this seemed to have a mind of its own. Just went with the flow. I am better at not getting ahead of myself when I start a piece. Take care David in NZ
