My sister and I were enjoying a visit when she surprised me by saying, “You say that all the time!” I had no idea what she was talking about. What had I just said? I suppose the confusion on my face prompted her to explain.
She stated, “’All right, then.’ You say that all the time.”
Has that happened to you? Has someone mirrored something to you that you had no clue about? How much of our lives are lived not being mindful? What else am I doing of which I am not aware?
I want my life to matter. I want my words to matter. I know I am here for a purpose and I want how I move through this world to bring forth life, always a steady presence pointing to God in my actions and words.
Is “all right, then” a bad thing to say? Of course not. But it’s not mindful either if uttered in the blank spaces of time from an unfocused mind and heart.
Let’s use our time here with intention set by a focused heart and mind. I will leave you with this scripture for reflection.
“May the words of my mouth and meditations of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and Redeemer.” Psalm 19:14
