Impress On My Mind

I close my eyes. In that darkness, I see a mosaic of…jigsaw puzzle pieces. Yes, the old Christmas family ritual is now a covid-19 shelter-in-place ritual.

It used to be said that the first thing a baby bird saw was imprinted on its mind as the parent. There were some cute cartoon jokes constructed from that observation.

I’m more interested in what we allow to be imprinted on our minds.

The Apostle Paul taught that we must set our minds on things of the spirit rather than things of the flesh.

Where we set our minds, what we allow our minds to dwell upon, becomes imprinted on our minds much like that jigsaw pattern I see when I close my eyes.

I can with intention change that picture I see within my eyes. So, too, can we change the nature of what we allow to impress upon our minds and set our minds on things of the spirit rather than things of the flesh.

That changes how we experience what life throws at us.
