All things Bright and Beautiful

Good Morning, God!

Oh, COLOR and LIGHT — the utter joy of SEEING! These flowers were for sale Saturday, at the KCC Farmers’ Market. But, had I bought them and taken them home, God, I wouldn’t be able, inside, to see the light pouring through them!

Diamond, Rubies, and Emeralds are nice, but I would be as pleased with colored glass. Actually, I might be MORE pleased because I wouldn’t have to be careful and protective of them.

It is interesting, God, how we humans assign Value to things. Researchers have found that most of us think that $30,000 more a year would make us far happier than taking a walk with a friend every day. But  research shows that a regular walk with a friend adds FAR more happiness to our lives.

Trips are great — but, I wouldn’t trade my daily morning coffee and chat with Kit, for a trip to anywhere. Small times of sharing — being heard into speaking — these are the foundation stones of a good life, God.

I suppose, that is how I feel when I sit here — Aware of Being In Your Presence — I feel heard into speaking. It is hard to speak fully from our hearts without someone hearing us. Preferably, someone who knows us and accepts us and values us — someone who loves us. And, more and more, God, I am understanding how much we need to speak — need to be heard.

I think it is part of how we process and digest the events of  our lives. Attending a Christian Healing Ministries workshop in 2008, I felt amazingly Light and Joyful after 90 minutes of confessing to total strangers. I shall never forget that!   Ah, God, thank You for the Gift of People who hear us into speaking!
