Rest, Rejoicing, and Colored Celtic Crosses

St. Kevin's cell area in Glendalough, Ireland (Glendaloch is how it sounds)

Good Day, God!

Time Zones have caught up with me. Yesterday I was rushing out of the house when I heard Diana’s voice calling. I FORGOT it was Thursday with my standing 6:30 a.m. walk date with her. That was distressing!

Perhaps I picked this photo for its very high relaxation quotient. I notice that I now tend to drive the most relaxing route. Yesterday I rejected making a left turn on to Kalanianaole and drove through the shopping center parking lot.  Smart. Especially smart when my reflexes and brain are somewhere over the Atlantic — maybe next week I’ll be over the Pacific.

Aside from wobbling a bit on the day of the week — I have been productive — without rushing. And, today will be relaxed and pleasant — with time to pray — time to center — to rejoice.

a colored celtic cross -- what they would have looked like

And, thank You God for letting me look back in TIME and see that the crosses in St. Kevin’s cell would have been JOYFUL!

How did we forget that? How did we get the idea that You wanted us to be serious and somber. After all, Jesus was called a wine bibber and a glutton. Not that he was. But, he must have been upsetting that idea.

So, here I am, God! Ready for my day. Help me remember that You made this World and called it GOOD! You made it FULL OF COLOR! Full of colorful people and Full of Kindness.

Praise YOU! Thank You for this GIFT of a New Day!

Help me to use it wisely — and to REJOICE IN IT!
