Good Evening, God!
My wonderful husband, Kit, is at our daughter Sandy’s home in Tucson. He is doing the Dad Thing and will be visiting our daughters for the next 12 days. I told him last night at the airport that I was much more dependent on him that he knew.
Actually, it turns out that I am a lot more dependent on him than I knew! This became clear to me as I took forever (2:00 a.m.?) to fall asleep. And it became even clearer this morning as I locked the keys in my car while going into Foodland.
Ah my — so much for my illusion of being a Self-Sufficient Being!
And, that does seem to be the message of the day, God! The scripture this morning was Luke 13:31-35. Verse 34 really spoke to me: “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem . . . How often I have wanted to gather your children together as a hen protects her chicks beneath her wings, but you wouldn’t let me.
That sounds like me, God. I struggle on doing things — or not doing them — myself.
But that verse, and the sermon, helped me to snuggle under Your Wings as I waited for AAA to come and pop my door open. Yes, You have put so many of the keys to our lives inside us. But, often I feel “locked out” by all the forces and details that inveigle me to doubt and fear — or just to fail to dream!
Calling AAA was obvious. Enlisting my Professional Organizer has been less obvious. As I worked with her for the rest of my day I was astounded by how she “unlocked” my capacity to Change and to See. Thank You, God, for gifted helpers!
