Good Morning, God!
I spent yesterday tidying up for Arcadia. Slowing listing what I do and how else it can be done. Actually, now that I am starting retirement I am wondering WHY didn’t I do this earlier?
But, I know why. Helping appreciative people — having a lovely library in my hands — that is like eating chocolate covered macadamia nuts. Addictive!
I give You all the credit, God, for helping me decide to do this. I went to Snowmass thinking I’d retire in a year or two. I came out after 10 days of silent prayer certain my retirement would have to be sooner. And now retiring has taken on a certain flow and I am looking forward to cleaning up and getting “out of the way.”
Ah, but, God, at Snowmass I don’t remember ever thinking about retirement consciously! How did You DO THAT? My Conscious Mind suspected You were up to something and I’m glad You were. Still, God, it is SURPRISING and a little scary.
How did Abraham pick up and leave Ur? He set aside his old stable life and took off –beginning a journey with no idea of his destination. That’s impressive, God! No wonder You blessed him. Although, now that I think about it — You took an incredibly LONG TIME to bless him and then asked him to “give up” his promised and long-awaited son.
Sigh. You ARE scary, God! Mostly, I try not to see THAT part of You. I know You LOVE US, God. It is just that Your definition of LOVE is not like our soft and fuzzy definition. Please, I need Your Help dealing with that.
