Good Morning, God
I usually see this view in the morning — it is a softer light at dusk — wrapping around us, welcoming us into relaxation. I am a recovering adrenaline addict, God. Part of the “do two things at once and do them quickly” syndrome.
Dang! Caught! Yes, God, I WAS going to comment on how much wiser it is to relax! Making it sound as if I had mellowed and matured. But You reminded me that just this morning I was teaching two people at the same time — teaching them quite different things — and LOVING IT.
One person complimented me on my patience. But, teaching/tutoring is a JOY — at no point is patience ever required. Well, hardly ever.
Still, I am pleased with the part of me that is now enjoying slow — the part of me that values and cherishes NOT working on the Sabbath. Of course, I still am not managing myself well enough to avoid TOO BUSY the day before the Sabbath. Ah, but I FEEL the PULL toward Centeredness and CALM.
Let’s see, God, how many years since the electric light was invented? Was it in the 1880’s? Only 130 years to roll back the Night? To change the pattern of waking with the Dawn and sleeping in the Night?
Caught, again! I was just getting ready to blame our BUSY BUSY on electric lights! Before, only the wealthy few could dance the night away by candle light.
Technology, like Wealth, does set before us an incredible array of choices. God, You have set us FREE to choose — Help us cling to YOU and choose wisely. Help me see that RESTING in YOU is the KEY to WISE CHOOSING.
