In thinking and pondering the Beautitudes (Matthew 5:1-12), there is this from the devotion d365:
The philosopher Søren Kierkegaard explained that “purity of heart is to will one thing.” Can you imagine all of your options, priorities, and opportunities narrowed down to just one? That is purity – a heart that has a single focus, not distracted and pulled in many directions.
I cannot even seem to have that kind of focus for a short period of time, much less always! Makes me truly thankful for God’s grace!
And then, the death of Mary Tyler Moore. As a young woman, her character, Mary Richards, was a hero, one I often looked to for help with navigating the single life and all that came with it – living alone, dating, working, friendships. She could be strong and yet not overpowering, independent yet she needed others. Mary Tyler Moore will certainly be missed, and I am thankful she was around when I needed her.
