Good Day, God!
Yesterday a dear friend offered me this verse from the Message: “Dear, dear Corinthians, I can’t tell you how much I long for you to enter this wide-open, spacious life.” (2 Corinthians 6:11) Or as she put it — enter into Kairos.
Those were lovely words to hear and to savor, God, as my husband Kit and I prepare for a three week trip. So much to do before leaving, God, and so I have been feeling the pressure — even though I know I have “enough” time.
So, this morning after my jewelry class I set off to the Honolulu Museum of Art to pick up a jeweler’s rouge polishing cloth. And, no doubt inspired by a desire to live in “this wide-open spacious life,” I drifted around taking photos.
I got to this lovely archway into one of the courtyards and found myself thinking of “birth canals,” which does seem odd, God. But, this morning during my Centering Prayer (now up to 5 minutes — but done daily) I had a Wave of Resolution flow through me . . . about what I wanted for my future. It did make me think of New Beginnings, God.
New Beginnings don’t happen often enough for me, God. The flip side of my Adaptability is Drift. And now that I no longer have the crutch of work, I’ve been noticing my Drift. So, this morning this sense of Direction and Certainty came as an enormous gift. Thank You, God!
And please help me to keep on entering and re-entering Your Wide-Open, Spacious Life!
