Good Morning, God!
Yesterday was a lovely day . . . a very social day with breakfast, lunch and dinner out with friends.It was a mostly “going slow” day.
Kit meanwhile was serving dinner to the homeless with the CUC music committee. Hmmm. Probably, God, enough said.
Yesterday a friend shared how she loved looking up at the Nuuanu Valley every morning. No two mornings are the same with varying combinations of mist, clouds and sunlight.
I feel the same way about our Marina that my friend does about the Nuuanu Valley. Each vantage point has its own beauty. There is just something marvelous about water, God. We humans resonate to water — building too close to rivers and oceans for total safety — irresistibly drawn to it.
Hmmm. The phrase “irresistibly drawn to it” has caught my ear, God. For I am irresistibly drawn back to my “normal” activities –– to “commitments” — to my “regular life.” Yes, God, Sandy was right when she told me on Sunday, “CANCEL YOUR WHOLE WEEK.” I knew she was “right,” as far as my body went. The bug I got right after returning from a third Mainland trip might not have been pneumonia but it has had the same effect. And I know — yes, KNOW– that REST is what bodies need to heal.
Oh, but yesterday was such a lovely day. So I find myself continuing to go right up to the “edge” of my physical limits. But, this morning my Body has made it clear that it is going to keep on giving me the “message” until I learn and CHANGE. I feel like a horse being “trained” to the bit and bridle — a very Headstrong Horse! I shall go and Sit in Silence and Stillness for 20 minutes.
