True Rest: Coming to a Full Stop

A Cat Friend of Suzanne -- who greets her on her walks

Good Day, God!

It wasn’t hard to find today’s photo! I feel just like this cat! Totally relaxed. Last night I was worried that my cold might go down into my chest — I hate bronchitis, God! But, an old remedy — a steamer with a drop of oil of cloves, thyme and cinnamon — did the trick.

I am at a Full Stop, God. Thank You! It feels good. And now I’m thinking of how much Being Time I have wasted. Hmm. Let me reframe that, God. I am now looking forward to enjoying Being Time. Being Alive. Being With.

Ah, God. What was that quote that delighted me recently? Oh yes, Sophia Loren said it: “Mistakes are part of the dues that one pays for a full life.”

You do so want us to live Full Lives, God! And to do that we have to understand that we cannot live without making mistakes. I suspect that our culture wants to live without mistakes. I’m sitting here and pondering that marvelous story about the prodigal son . . . and his “I never made a mistake” older brother. The poor dear older brother was so upset, God, when their father rejoiced so greatly when he welcomed home the “never did anything right” younger brother.

I’m looking at this adorable cat. He comes running to see our daughter Suzanne when she walks by his home. She adores him. And he obviously loves it.

You love us far far more than our daughter loves this cat. You love all of us — mistake makers and mistake haters. Please, God, help us to love.
