Mental Health

Most people I know are mentally healthy, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have mental tics.  Few minds are completely sane; it’s just the way we were created and raised.  I had a friend, who although he led a normal single life, as a teacher, kept his funeral clothes spread out on a bed in his two-bedroom apartment.  I don’t know if this contributed to it, but he died fairly young.

There are quite a few people who have such tics, but I don’t dare mention them lest they be recognized by readers of this blog.  If you look at a sturdy oak, most of the leaves have some blemish, whether the work of an insect or just a growth abnormality.  It is the work of Nature.  We humans are not exempt.  It’s all part of the divine plan.  Now there’s someone reading this who has a problem with “the divine plan.”

I accept what God did with me (though I wasn’t always happy with it), and marvel at the variety in His creation.  There is no human craftsman whose work is perfect, though like God, we come so close to it.  Here’s to you, a near perfect work of art.
