Perspective Shifter

A friend of ours learned two months ago that he has brain cancer. The incurable kind.

His wife is journaling on CaringBridge about the new normal that has become their journey. Despite this development that no one would call ‘good’, she signs off her latest entry with these words: “God is good, ALL THE TIME!”

Their path is a bona fide perspective shifter to my journey and definition of a new normal. I struggle with directional impairment and getting lost on the unfamiliar roadways. I continue to search for my next career opportunity (being one of the ‘uncounted’ in the job numbers). Yet I am healthy, and so is my beloved.

With the adjusted 5-year plan in both my career and finances, my perspective on those earthly things may have shifted. But the absolute in my life stands firm: God is good. ALL the time.

And that’s what matters today and for eternity.
