Good Day, God!
Some days are just FILLED with beauty. I have been so busy SEEING that I wonder that my eyes aren’t exhausted. But, the more we truly see, the more we want to see.
The morning sky was filled with “cloud pebbles” and was so spectacular that a friend just emailed me a photo of the sky that her husband took. My Friday morning walk around Kapiolani Park was broadened to include the former rose garden with the huge yellow royal poinciana tree. Glorious!
And then this evening my husband Kit and I took Linda out to the House Without a Key for dinner. Linda is my freshman college roommate who is visiting for the first time since we have lived here. She and her daughter-in-law Julie and granddaughter Megan are staying at the Outrigger Reef — right next door to the Halekulani. I have been “sharing” our island with them. And that has gotten me up and around our island — much to my delight.
I find, God, that I am much happier if I keep my eyes on Your World. I confess that I have screened out most of the world’s “news” due to over-reactions on my part. I know enough to pray. And I give what I can. Beyond that, God, I find that the “bad news” has assorted adverse effects on me. Sigh.
Perhaps I am derelict in my duty . . . or perhaps I am just following St. Paul’s advice to: “Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.”
