Tuesdays at Ten: Humility

I am dreaming of humility… and in my dream I am searching. Searching everywhere. Looking high and low. I look into the movies of today. I see self-gratification and violence. I look in the television and contemporary music. More of the same. I look into the windows of our homes. I watch the families that live there. I see abuse, anger, selfishness and people living out their lives for their own personal satisfaction. I can’t seem to find it anywhere. Where can I find humility in today’s world?

I just finished booking a weekend family house in Lincoln City for Memorial Day weekend. Last year was the first time that our family had decided to get together over this extended weekend and spend a little quality time together away from our busy jobs and never ending house and yard chores. It was my husband, our grown-up kids, our precious little “almost four” year old grandson, my parents and my sister and brother-in-law. We did the typical tourist activities like visit the aquarium and play in the sand…in fact it included lots and lots of playing in the sand which is a priority when you are “almost four”. But one thing I enjoyed most was our marathon puzzle building activity. For Christmas the previous year, I had received a 1000 piece puzzle. The picture...
