A Welcome Day of Rest

A Pink Ginger in our neighborhood

Good Morning, God!

I looked at my calendar yesterday and I can stay home ALL DAY today! A Low-Stimulous Day! A GIFT! I think, God, that You might be installing a rheostat inside myself. Not an ON or OFF switch, but a rheostat. A DIAL I can turn. Imagine that!

Yesterday, I got a fast start — but came home to a late lunch and a nap — a nap that wasn’t long enough. Then it was off to visit Mom, eat dinner, pray and go to bed early, reading from Kitchen Table Wisdom.

My old Persona shouted WHAT A WHIMP TO BE SO TIRED! I think she is the one that thinks I’m supposed to LEAP TALL BUILDINGS IN A SINGLE BOUND. I used to actually DO that, God. But the LANDING got harder and harder. That’s sort of a joke, God. But that was my Self Image — my Favorite Illusion.

Now here I am, God! It is a New Day. Pink clouds are floating in a blue sky. And slowly the idea surfaces that PERHAPS having Patty’s Fun Run on Sunday means it wasn’t exactly a Sabbath. Well, yes. It was WONDERFUL. But both Kit and I were WIRED. So, here I am, God. Sitting. Aware of YOU. Hearing Your Call to Come • Sit • Receive. And so I shall — I shall take my timer and go to sit in Centering Prayer. Sitting in Your Transforming Presence — with gratitude and humility. Thank You!
