Day 28 and now we know that day 28 reduces to 10 which is actually a ? ~ A 1 ~ yes ~ that’s right!
I set out to write 30 or 31 days worth of ideas and thoughts that are related to The Bible and me. It might not be your thoughts on the Holy scriptures and God, but the ideas are how I connect to him and his son.
So, now I ask you, how do you connect with the creator of the universe? What are your awakening or defining moments that give you an AW HA moment? Perhaps, you don’t have any of those exciting experiences and that’s your path, but remember all of us, no matter where we are today, can’t ever say, Never Say Never, because we do not know, what our future holds. I’m certain those in Nepal had no idea that their day of the quake would devastate their homes and city forever. Their world made a drastic change. Strangely, I would be willing to bet that some people who believed in a god, struggle today with any beliefs, and those people who did not have any faith, may have formed some kind of convictions … We can’t know the whole of any lives yet, but one day someone, or two, may share their aftermath thoughts. It will be something to consider and something worth taking time to ponder.
The earthquake was heartbreaking, no doubt, and our sincere best wishes and prayers were probably not enough at that time…
So now back to the number 1, numero uno. As I wrote before in lesson 27, the number one is the base of all numbers. It bares the burden of all digits and integers. It is always working, always giving and always wanting a little limelight for itself, but rarely gets recognized. So today, I honor the 1 people in the world. They are like 9 folks but are harder workers with every aspect of the existence, whether it is mental work or physical.
They, the 1 souls, are your assistant accountants. They are your helpers on any level. They do carpentry projects on the weekend or vise-versa and accounting bookkeeper/assistant, on other days. They are your substitute teachers and your security cops, they are an assistant to all and rarely get the glory, and are the cornerstone of all great people. They are the 1950 wives of great men. They are the presidents spouses and sometimes are the janitors. Sometimes, they will be, in scouting dens as in an assistant role. Ones, (1’s) were probably the finest workers in the ditches of battles, The most diligent in the worst of slavery camps, and anywhere no one wanted or wants to be, the 1 takes over. In the one (1) position you can also find The Mother Teresa’s who also shares the 9 path There are absolutely no roles they can not do, but they are the constant assistant. This is their position in life and was assigned before birth. The 1 soul agreed to take no fame or fortune for them selves, but would continuously give and support all other numbers.
They do get tired with their role and they know that in most situations they could do a better job than those numbers they choose to support. However, they graciously, with a sigh, salute and applaud all other number people or souls. After all, if you or I were a 1 soul, and knew we could do a better job, or be a better president, wouldn’t we feel a certain frustration because we will never have any of the praise of applause, but could do a better job. 1’s will forever remain invisible and probably never be thanked by those whom they support.
So, today I thank all, 1 people, or souls and applaud their noble qualities. The world could not work without you number 1’s. I would be willing to bet that most of the people in the world are number 1’s and they are the cornerstones of all societies. They are The Martha’s of The Bible. The ones (1’s) will never have an Academy Award or a Nobel Peace Prize because the assistant doesn’t get the awards; however, it was the helpers loyalty and strength that gained the notoriety for the recipient of the honors… And always remember, in the end, God recognizes all souls and sees everything under the sun… The 1 will gain a crown that will be bigger than life.
For all Martha’s or 1 Souls :
Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.
Not so the wicked!
They are like chaff
that the wind blows away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.
