Good Morning, God!
I am still a little tired from — but so thankful for — a December filled with family and friends. Actually, I am grateful for a LIFE filled with Family and Friends. My desk is cluttered. My office needs attention. But, my HEART is Alive and Well.
Not to say that my Heart isn’t HURTING as I lift up to You, God, the ones who are ailing or ill. But, hurting is part of loving. Hurting is part of having a Working Heart.
Problems and Pain are Part of Life. I suppose we need “pain” because we are so comfortable in “the usual.” It takes something HARD to prompt a shift into NEW PATTERNS. Dang!
I picked iLife for the image this morning, just because I was SO UPSET at having to unlearn the old iPhoto and RELEARN the new iPhoto. Upgrades are PAINFUL. They feel like Downgrades! But, as I look back on 2010, I do feel as if I have had a small upgrade.
Do I have a slightly “larger” heart? I hear You say — not larger, but a bit more active. Hmm. An Active Heart! I like that phrase. I like the concept — even though I know I will not like the pain. But pain will not dissolve me. And, if it is coupled with Trust and Prayer, it will help me be about Your Business of CARING.
This morning, Kit was pondering the vastness of Space and how we are so small and finite. And, God, I FELT You say, “I CARE!” You do CARE, God. And, You want us to CARE, too. Help us to CARE and to PRAY!
