Good Day, God!
I am beginning this post at the very beginning of the day. I began by reading GOD Calling on my Nook app. And it is true, God, what they quoted You as saying — Come Apart! Spend time in My Presence — I am with you.
Ah, God, I know that people do a lot of harm “in Your Name,” but have they spent Time in Your Presence — or are they following those claiming to know? Well, please, God, expand us all.Expand our Hearts! And, that request really is enough for the whole day, God. A Heart felt plea.
But, although such pleas are important, I’ve noticed that I creep forward and fall back . . . or maybe just fall back . . . with distressing regularity. I am beginning to suspect that maybe the end goal is not so much to be “improved” or “expanded” as it is to come nose to nose with my basic nature. Sadly I am imperfectable. Even this biological optimist “gets it.”
But, having gotten it . . . and adjusted my self-image down several notches — I still go back to the game of trying to get my life in balance. I’m listening to Judith Kolberg’s book on ADD-Friendly Ways to Organize Your Life. I think I absorb information better through my ears.
Listening to the book today, God, I realized that I need to reset my DEFAULTS. Instead of defaulting to KEEP I need to reset my default to TOSS. That would really help clean out a lot of the creeping clutter.
Well, Kit is home at last from visiting our daughters on the Mainland and all is well with my world — even if it is not as organized as it will be!
