Two Thoughts from Monday (thoughts unrelated to Mondays)

Lend a shoulder,
Lend a prayer.
Not long has past,
since you were there.

Difference was made
by steady hands,
to hold you sound
on shifting sands.

Lend a shoulder,
Lend a prayer
not long has past,
since you were there.

When we stand on the shoulders of giants, we are lifted above the congested life on the ground. We are elevated above the narrow perspective that so crowds our vision for life and the future. When we stand on the shoulders of giants, we are able to see a greater, clearer picture.

Isaac Newton wrote in response to a letter which praised his magnificent mathematical mind, ‘If I have seen further [than those who came before] it is by standing on the sholders of Giants.’ Newton saw further. It was equally important to go, to do, to take the risks he did, but he saw first.

So those two thoughts:

Whose shoulders are you standing on and where are you looking?

Who are you holding on your shoulders today and what are you showing them?
