Seeing, Envisioning, and Becoming

The Santa Catalina mountains from Sandy's home

Good Day, God!

Isn’t this a beautiful view! Sandy and Dave’s home faces these lovely mountains — but the patio was in the back of the house. Dave had double glass doors put in the front and then had a brick patio put in all along the front of the house — facing the mountains. And this view is through the covered grilling area he had built.  I really like it.

I also like that he could SEE what he wanted to do. We have friends that can SEE what COULD BE. I did do that with my loft, but, it sure took me a long time before I could see what could be done.

Change begins with seeing . . . with Vision and Envisioning. You did tell Isaiah that “Without Vision the People perish”.  I love that. I KNOW it is TRUE. But, I am beginning to realize that I still haven’t unpacked that idea. It has been like a seed lying quietly inside me that only needs a little water (attention?) to sprout UP and STRETCH OUT and EXPAND ME.

Smile, that could be WHY I haven’t given this idea much attention. Staying the same is comfortable and seems risk free. It isn’t, of course. It just feels that way. I feel that if I don’t change then nothing around me will change and we will keep on as we were. Gosh, God. Now that I say that I can see how foolish it is.

Yet, it is true that when a person changes it sets off a ripple of changes. Yes, God. Let me restate that: AS I CHANGE it will set off ripples — unintended ripples — unintended consequences. So, harboring the illusion that I don’t have to change is understandable.

God, I’m smiling again. Mark is going to “help” me organize my thousands of bookmarks into folders. Not the change I was envisioning. But it is a start. Thank You!

    Any change you would love to nudge me toward? I’m open . . . and you are so wise (and lots more).
