Whether it’s working our bodies, the food we eat, satisfaction or vindication, many are the inputs to feeling good in our own skin.
The older we get the more important it is to feel truly good on the inside. This has both physical and spiritual connotations — and all between, to the mental and emotional also.
Lasting peace is that frank surprise of this prepared nature; to have ‘gone on in’ toward the search for contentment in the Lord, to listen and to feel our way there — to our essence.
Better to feel good in the body than to look good in the mirror. The former is wisdom; the latter vanity, which is sweeping itself away on a tide to nowhere. Forgotten before long is that current which might ordinarily consume us if we’re not careful.
Feeling and learning to feel: great things are these. This is life and hope for us, yes, today!
