Points of View and Cleaning Connections

A View from the Mariposa Room

Good Morning, God!

Another New Day! And one in which I go to the Farmers’ Market, too. Thank You for today! I will thank You also for last night — even though, my night was FILLED with dreams.

Perhaps that was because I DID call my therapist, Mavis, and I will see her this Monday. Maybe You wanted to make sure I had stuff to share? It is GOOD to SHARE. It might even be essential to our health and wellbeing!

This view from the Mariposa Room at Nieman Marcus is probably analogous to my usual point of view — looking at the good and the lovely. That is actually a very good point of view. St. Paul, himself, tells us that whatsoever things are good and pure and true and lovely — think on those.

But, that does not preclude times of retrospection and “house cleaning.” In fact, I am pretty sure Times of Confession are needed prior to Times of Repentance. Or is it the other way around? No matter, they are two sides of the same coin. But, WHY should I take “time out”, as it were, to ask for help in processing?

This is a good question, God, and hard to explain — unless one has done it. I know YOU know my Heart. But, I am not ABLE to SEE ALL of myself. Some things seem too painful — so they are repressed by the Protective Part of me. AND THAT TAKE ENERGY!

So, it isn’t so much “cleaning house” as it is cleaning out the water line into my house. The STUFF that has gotten stuck between Me and Thee needs dredging out — so more of You can flow (or trickle) into me. Thank You, God!
