Walking (slowly) in the Light

Morning in Kapiolani Park looking at Diamond Head

Good Morning, God!

Yesterday I intended to jog around Kapiolani Park. I thought that after my 3.1 mile “Mango Days 5K” race on Sunday it would be doable.

Not so, God. Although I did jog for a half-mile or so, it was a reminder that getting back into condition takes time. Rebuilding my Body will take time and slow, loving steps. And rest.

And, it also makes me more thankful for Sunday’s 5K when I DID run the whole way.

Meanwhile, God, I had no trouble yesterday taking photos while I walked around the park. We live in such a Beautiful World! And for me it is the LIGHT that brings the most joy. Diamond Head was irresistible as a photo subject, but so were these bromeliads, which look pretty shaggy when the light is not pouring through them.

Ah, that we should let Your Light pour through us, God. Hmmm. Yes, I guess that takes training and time, too. And lots of intention.

Both my Body and my Spirit feel as if they have overdone and need rebuilding and renewing.

Retiring is essential to having the time and space to do the “renewing work” of letting go and moving on. But, at the same time, it is part of the work. Please, God, help me rebuild my Body, Spirit, and Sense of Identity.

  1. Both my Body and my Spirit feel as if they have overdone and need rebuilding and renewing. I am in the same place. I thought the body was doing well and was wrong. Back to the doctor on Monday.

    Arcadia has these wonderful personal trainers down stairs which have made a huge difference, Thank you God. I could not have recovered even a little bit with out them.

    For myself retiring does not seem what God wants me to do. However, slowing down is, I think the message.

    Eye surgery has worked very well. I am seeing better and did not know that I was going blind. Thank you God for taking that away.

    Sometimes Margie, we seem to be traveling the same path.

  2. Thanks, Katherine!
    Yes, SLOWER is so important as we pay back all the energy we have borrowed from the Bank. Glad your eyes are doing well! Love! Margie
