Good Morning, God!
Yesterday was a lovely day. I did do some work that I needed for this morning — but I did it very slowly and with a relaxed attitude.
It comes to me, God, that I take my “work” too seriously. I’m not in balance. Life is a gift to be savored — not rushed through. Efficiency is only ONE virtue. Being able to Step into Timelessness is — maybe not a virtue — but it is surely a Gift from You.
So, my office is kapakahi and papers are strewn around. But, I am peaceful and rested. I shall pick up later.
Kit went with me yesterday to the 7:00 a.m. service. I love that service. It is small enough so that I know most of the people. It was good to be there and to walk forward — one of many — to receive communion — a very Special Gift.
The raindrops on the windshield going home reminded me that I still have Grief Work to do. I am very fortunate, God, in being a Biological Optimist. My natural inclination is to “put a good spin” on things. Ah, but we relentlessly positive souls, still have to work at cleaning up our Emotional Bodies.
I am pretty sure, God, that the running helps — sweating, soaking in an epsom salts bath afterwards — both seem helpful in getting in touch with old, old feelings. Those FEELINGS have WAITED. I know that now. And now I have my therapist, Mavis, to help me go back — back in Time and back Inside me. Thank You, God, for all the gifts You have given me!
