Thoughts while looking at a parrot wearing a harness

Good Morning God!

I am having technical difficulties — I have reached my storage quota with Picasa and although I Have just raised my limit — for $ 5.00 a year — they say it takes 24 hours for it to go into effect. I feel a bit like this bird! Harnessed!

Mind You, God, here I am blogging in bed with my iPad — and, if I wished — I could get my laptop and blog the old AT HOME way and not need Picasa. Actually, now that I stop to think about it — I could do that on my iPad! It is just that I would have to stop and think — about HOW to do it.

What I am using now, Blogsy, was a fun kind of “work-around” I needed BEFORE I learned from WordPress how to do it on my blog. And, it was easier to keep the work-around. So easy that I forgot I could be doing it with fewer limitations. Ah, yes, the “work-around” became an Assumption Harness! I LOVE THAT PHRASE, GOD! I shall go shower and ponder how many unseen or forgotten Assumption Harnesses I have — keeping me from “flying.” It is so Lowering to consider how I limit myself!

Back from my shower, God! And, thanks, I guess, for showing me how much I am inclined to blame Others for my problems and situations. I can ASK for what I want! When I FEEL that it is PERMISSIBLE to ask — then I can ask pleasantly — and not have it spew forth at a scalding temperature.

Dang! I can see how Kit will “limit” himself by saying — “I’m like my Dad.” But, it is much harder for me to see how I LIMIT MYSELF. Did You just say, God, that I could start by listing all the people and organizations I BLAME for something or other?

Aargh! How humbling! How Totally PAINFUL — but, useful. Now, please, God, help me be strong enough to DO IT!
