May 12 – Daily Feast
Country people do not find it strange to hear the pond is turning over. They know it is not doing a flip but everything that has fallen in it suddenly comes to the top. It is nature’s way of cleaning house. It isn’t pretty but it does work. The whole pond of human affairs needs to turn over at times. When everything seems to happen at once, friends disagree, and coworkers are suddenly mired in stuff from the bottom of the pond, it is time to clean house. It isn’t always, u wo du hi, beautiful or pretty, but it does work. The best part is that it doesn’t last long. Everything rights itself with time – for a while. It helps to know that when something unclean falls in the water, eventually the pond will turn over to get rid of it. It just takes time.
