K is for Keystone

the wedge shaped stone piece at the apex of an arch which is the final piece placed during construction and locks all the stones into position, allowing the arch to bear weight...
There are many situations over our life time where we are the only one that could have done/said/produced what was needed at the right time and place, and impact on a situation in the way no one else could have ever dreamed.  We underestimate our gifts and talents, selling ourselves short, without realising we are all part of the puzzle.

I feel that we are all called upon to be the key to a situation or circumstance at some point in our lives and provide that much needed support.  And that support can also come in many different forms, it can be the smile and hello you have for that elderly person who hasn’t spoken to anyone in weeks. The friend you listen to without judgement and really ‘hear’ them, the child whose work you praise and they go on to be the artist they were meant to be or that phone call or card in the post from you that came at just the right time when the recipient was feeling at their lowest point.  It is very easy to give someone support without even realising its impact, that could well be the thing they think about for the rest of their lives.  

I celebrate my life today, that I can ponder on all those who have impacted on my life and who have led me down the path I currently find myself on.  But more importantly to God who is the foundation and the keystone of my life.  How can you be more mindful of your impact and actions today?
