Horizon Haiku (Connected)
The earth meets the sky
A promise in the distance
We are connected
As we move toward the new year, I am learning to recognize the depth of my connections.
I am connected to God through His love and grace. I am connected to my family, and that includes my pets. I am connected to my friends, and that includes blogger buddies. I am connected to my co-workers. I am connected to my neighbors and community. I am connected to the human race, persons near and far, on earth and in heaven. I am connected to nature. I am connected to myself, including my physical senses, inner thoughts and emotions.
The surface connections are easy to see. It is the deeper layers of connection that are on my mind. How does it all work together? Can growing in appreciation of all these complex bonds make me more grounded, understanding, optimistic, peaceful, loving, and kind? Can it make me a better human, friend, sister, and child of God? I think it can. I believe it will.
