Good Morning God!
Well, it is sort of the middle of my night, God. Kit has a staph infection on his lower left leg. It is responding to the antibiotic — THANK YOU, GOD! But he woke up with it needing rewrapping and I had to improvise. So I thought I would get up and chat with YOU. Perspective is always helpful.
This photo sure gives perspective. My brother sent it with the story of how a female whale was seriously entrapped in nets and four divers volunteered to cut her free. That’s a risky job, God –freeing entrapped creatures — but the whale held steady. Then when she was FREE she leapt about joyfully and then went to each diver in turn — as if to thank them. The divers were very moved. I checked. It really happened.
Speaking of perspective. Today I heard from my friend who is suffering from colon cancer. He’s the one You “made” me talk to about how important it is to FORGIVE and RELEASE all the bad stuff of his past so he doesn’t waste today’s energy paying rent on the Past. He’s been working hard on forgiving. This Thanksgiving his sister flew over to help. They are close again after years “apart”. Furthermore, her former husband also came out to help. Now the “couple” are talking about setting aside their “past” troubles and maybe getting back together.
It is like a cascade of healing. Maybe, God, ALL healing begins with forgiving and releasing? And, perhaps Forgiving is related to Not Judging? Maybe they both depend on compassion? We are all entrapped by the nets of our past, God, and YOU long to set us free.
