Getting Adapted

I am happy to live among people with similar values.  It would be challenging, and is, to mix with people of differing values.  But what if I fail to convince the others I’m right? Failed to convert a Mary Magdalene to be a Theresa of Avila?  I don’t care for the prospect of defeat.

Nobody does.  But life has risk, and I’ve lived with risk before.  There were the U-boats in the Atlantic crossing in 1942, though I was not fully aware (I was 8 years old), and there was always the prospect of being considered a foreigner.

So we live with our innermost attitudes, and deal with the prospects of providence (or fate).  Whatever the good Lord sends.
