Psalms 49:1-3 ESV
Hear this, all peoples! Give ear, all inhabitants of the world, both low and high, rich and poor together! My mouth shall speak wisdom; the meditation of my heart shall be understanding.
My son, Carrington and I are in Florida visiting my ailing mother; and for me to take care of some business. The last time I was down here was in August 2011 for my father’s funeral.
Being in Florida-especially in the Miami/Hollywood/Fort Lauderdale area-is quite the experience. I see all kinds as I drive down the streets. I’ve seen ritzy neighborhoods just minutes from the ‘ hoods. I’ve seen exotic cars and walking homeless and indigent in the same area.
If I could so bold to say, my observations could be analogous to society as a whole today. We have this polarized social order of the “haves” and “have nots”; and in the midst of it all life goes on.
Plus, being alone with an (almost) 5-year old gives you a healthy respect for those single parents who juggle job, kid, and home.
As Carrington and I get ready to return to New Jersey, I leave Mom in the hands of the Divine and Mom’s caregivers. Two of my sisters are down here with Mom as well. If possible, I plan to see Mom again in the near future.
Those are my thoughts, and like the above psalmist, I was able to lay some wisdom on ya’
Peace from Hollywood, Florida.
