The Christmas Season is Coming in on a WAVE

A Hawaiian Santa Claus

Good Morning, God!

Last night it started to RAIN and it is still not sure if it really wants to stop. The sky is grey and everything green is GREENER. I love it!

The Season has caught a wave and rushes toward me. Bearing gifts? I hope not much in the way of material gifts. Gosh, God, I haven’t even thought to ask for an iPad. I have enough. Well, no, I have TOO MUCH! Too much stuff. Too much busyness. But, TODAY, is a Day of Rest.

And I can see the total value of closing down my workshop — and BEING WITH Kit and Suz and Mom and friends at church. Ah, but can I DO IT? Doing IS addictive. In some odd way if confirms my worth and gives me a sense of competency. AND IF I COULDN’T DO ANYTHING? WHAT THEN?

Then I would have a “Period of Adjustment” wouldn’t I, God. I was tempted to say, Oh, THEN I would PRAY. But, I am beginning to get the point. Prayer is FAR MORE than DOING. WELCOMING? SURRENDERING? SOAKING? SINGING WITH THE MORNING STARS?

So, here on a rainy Sabbath Day, You invite me — invite us all — to step out of our small daily pots — and catch YOUR WAVE of LOVE. The Wave of Your SPIRIT.
