Good Morning God!
This is an incredible world! And last Friday before going to the spa at the Ihilani I went to look at the world YOU created.
So beautiful! And it was good to get out of my usual paths — to look at another part of this jewel of an island.
You know, God, just looking at the photos aerates my soul — how much more being there helped tiredness and busyness drop away.
How odd that we don’t take a break more often to refresh ourselves. Perhaps, learning to prepare for and then relax into the Sabbath — is really a lesson in taking a break. Perhaps the Sabbath is more about learning to disengage from the addictive world of productivity — than it is about not working.
But, then again, it is probably both of those and much more. You are the master of intertwining gifts and lessons, God!
Just one more photo from Friday’s outing. A white hibiscus that was so lush that I thought at first it must be a gardenia.
Thank You, God, that I was ABLE to take a break — and yes, I was tempted to excuse myself as having too much to do! Imagine that!
Sigh, I want to live life using the stepping stone model — not the freeway model.
This morning I am going to work hard — trying to get my areas shaped up. I know I would have enjoyed myself EVEN more yesterday if there weren’t at least 20 items out calling for attention on my desk. Ah! But, I LET THEM WAIT! This morning, too, I am beginning with You.
Now, please help me to take BREAKS — to Breathe — to BE AWARE — to Be AVAILABLE.
