Good Morning, God!
I love sitting outside at twilight and watching the movement of both the Sun and the Moon. We go to this restaurant a day or two before the full moon because I also love going to bed early.
The evening that this photo was taken I was able to see the sunlight slowly move up Koko Crater. I could “see” Time Passing, God!
When the sun is overhead I have trouble seeing it move. Even over the course of several hours I can’t see it move.
There is something very satisfying about being able to see Time Passing. Transitions are happening all the time — all around us, and, YIKES, even in us! But these are mostly too small to notice. Usually noticing requires something dramatic — like having to buy a larger size pair of pants — which I did have to do a few weeks ago.
Buying larger pants was an unhappy marker for an unhappy transition, God. So, I am back on my NO GRAIN DIET and I am digging in to fight Entropy — that appalling tendency of things to unravel and slide into disorder! I am fighting it in my Body and in my Office. But, mostly God, I feel this is a battle being fought in my Heart.
My Heart wants to feel that both Body and Office can be reordered and reorganized. My Heart wants to have Hope for what is coming next. A Hope that leads to Anticipation and Joy. A Hope that sustains us in the ongoing discipline required to reorder our lives.
Please, God, replenish my Hope — I need it to change — I need it to flow into the future.
