Simply Sunday... on Real Living



"The great thing, if one can, is stop regarding all the unpleasant things as interruptions of one's 'own' or 'real' life. The truth is of course that what one calls the interruptions are precisely one's real life -- the life God is sending one day by day: what one calls one's 'real life' is a phantom of one's own imagination. This at least is what I see at moments of insight: but it's hard to remember it all the time." ~ C.S. Lewis, The Letters of C.S. Lewis to Arthur Greeves

This quote makes me think of another well-known quote: Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.

It's good to be reminded that every breath we breathe and every moment we live is our real life, even when that includes life gone awry or situations that feel intrusive. Maybe we'll be more able to go with the flow if we do.

Our life is here,our life is now ... in every shape and colour it arrives in. I want to remember that as I start my new week. You too?

Wishes for a great day,
Brenda
