Goodness is not complicated. And makes no apology for its plainness, its directness, its lack of protocol or sophistication or appropriate appearances. Goodness just shows up wherever and however suits the moment . . .

. . . and goodness is instantly recognizable regardless . . .

and always welcomed.

Here’s the thing: Goodness acts by pitching in, not by taking charge, and yet if an initiative is called for
. . . a volunteer of sorts . . . goodness steps forward . . .

. . . steps up,

steps in, 

but doesn’t step on.

This is the meaning of: “The meek shall inherit the earth.”

First of all:

     Meek is not weak.

            Or timid

Or indecisive.

Whoever’s been telling you that has an agenda other than truth.

The meek are those who feel genuinely equal and do not push to be first. The meek are those who, as they rise to stand, do not need to knock anyone else over and are always reaching out to those nearby to help them rise together.

    Disclaimer: Poetic license is at work both here and in my books. Any errors or anomalies are through no fault of my editor. These were left deliberately at my expressed intention to clearly indicate that goodness does not require perfection.

    "Having read only the first few pages, I had a feeling of warmth and familiarity which spurred me on to continue reading page after page."
