Good Evening, God!
Aah, another full day! I love Wednesdays. This morning I got a cup of tea and climbed into bed to chat — via phone — with my beloved husband, Kit, who is visiting our daughter Sandy and her family in Tucson. Kit is soloing because that way he has one-on-one time with his daughters. If we both go then Mother/Daughter Time tends to squeeze him out. Now I finally understand that Father/Daughter Time is extremely important and I’m really thankful I am able to get out of the way.
Then I was off to our Women’s Prayer Group followed by a visit with June, my Spiritual Director. I trust June. And I feel as if June is helping me Organize my Being — just as my Professional Organizer is helping me organize my home. Organize my Being? Yes, that is the phrase that popped into my mind and it feels right.
This morning after our prayer group I was laughing with friends about how our group doesn’t have A Leader. We have a lot of lower-case-leaders who intuitively speak up or share gifts informally and organically. Then at June’s I realized that my New Grand Alliance works exactly the same way.
(Note on my Grand Alliance: several weeks ago when I was talking to June about my “dreadful” Warrior Spirit. June suggested that I might want to work together with her. I agreed and said that I was willing to try. And as soon as I said that I “heard” my Warrior Spirit “say” Wonderful! WE can have a Grand Alliance!)
Realizing — that all my “Parts” want to work together that same way our Prayer Group works — is surprising. This is a very female model, God. And I am just beginning to truly appreciate it.
