Keep An Open Mind

This week I have experienced, viewed, shared discouragement in our fellow human beings. I was moved to share this little poem with you. Often when I am a little sad about the current state of such close mindedness, I get out this poem and read it, somehow it helps.

Snug lie those who slumber

Beneath convictions roof,

Their floors are sturdy timber,

Their windows weatherproof.

But I sleep cold forever,

And cold sleep all my kind,

For I was born to shiver

In the draft of an open mind.

-Unknown Author

Religious, political, ethical or whatever convictions held by so many; make them so intolerant of others. What a wonderful world this would be if each of us would be willing to open our minds to others! Even just a little!

With that said! I have also viewed this week what we humans are capable of when a tragic event happens! We all seem to come together to do such good, even if it is only for a short time. Please pray, send good thoughts or whatever you do to the individuals, their families and the heroes who came to help in the Minnesota bridge collapse.

Open your mind to the possibility of shades of grey, not just black and white!

    Amen! What a lovely thought to start my day – I think we can all be guilty of intolerance from time to time. I have a little poster in my daughter’s bathroom that says “An open mind lets the good life in,” and I hope to model that for my children the best I can.
