The What and Who of Meandering About

The Most Significant Number

One...

Such a small word. 

One...

Such a tiny value.

One...

That is, until you consider its significance.

Sometimes it is just one who decides to do something instead of standing idly by that makes a difference.
Sometimes it is just one who has eyes to see the promise in a life others curse that sparks a willingness to be.
Sometimes it is just one who listens when others will only speak that give space for the voiceless to be heard.
Sometimes it is just one who speaks a prophetic word into hopelessness that instills a sense of new life.
Sometimes it is just one who takes a risk to reach out in love that gifts another the courage to continue on.
Sometimes it is just one who invests their time in the life of another that encourages a spirit of confidence.
Sometimes it is just one who understands their own life as a gift to be shared that opens a way where there appeared to be no way.
Sometimes it is just one who sits by the side of one who has nothing to give in return that gives value to existence.
Sometimes it is just one who beholds the beauty hidden in the eyes of the enemy that finds friendship where others see only enmity.
Sometimes it is just one who shares that inspires equity.

You see, one is the most significant number.
There really is no manner in which its import can be measured.
Consider all of the ones who have been in your life.
They all had one thing in common.  They were willing to be one.
That is where it all begins.
It is our choice. Are we willing?

For someone out there, you are just the one!
Be ONE.
