Eat the ripe ones first


Are you the kind who picks through the rotten ones first, just to see if they’re salvageable?

Who trims and stomachs the sour just so they don’t go to waste?

Then, by the time you get to the red, ripe luscious ones, they are sour, too?

Today, I am eating the red, shiny ones first!

Life is too short to waste time on sour.

Life comes at you fast. I like to catch it and toss it back. Or toss it up to see where it lands. I do my best thinking when I'm moving. And my best writing when I am tapping my foot to a beat no one else hears. Kinesthetic to the core.

  1. I’m with you, Wendy! I was thinking that our thoughts are like those strawberries. Whatever is fresh, and luscious, and nourishing, let’s intentionally think on these things. Let’s choose yummy!

    • Love it, Mary. Yes,

      Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8 (NIV)

      When we focus first on the other things, not only are we distracted, but by the time we get to the good fruit, it is over ripe and mushy, too! Or somebody else got there first 🙂
