A New Perspective

Good Evening, God!

A good day — mostly at home — but I did get out. I’ve been going to the gym every day but Sunday. Well, don’t be too impressed, God — this was only my sixth day.

But today Kit, my very fit and athletic husband, suggested that I jog down to the gym — good exercise! — and then jog back.

I had to think about that. A total of four miles?

However, being the optimist that I am, I thought . . . well, it is only two miles there — with a nice break in the  air conditioned gym — and then two miles back.

Sigh, I learned, once again, that Optimists are not good at looking ahead. Furthermore, in deciding whether or not to do it, I left late, at mid morning. So, I am somewhat sunburned. But, I’m not yet sore!

Jogging over I got some wonderful photos of Koko Crater from a new perspective. This one is from the bridge that spans the opening between the Marina and Maunalua Bay.

Hmm. New perspectives are what Kit and I have been given, God, with the recent death of my mommy.

For nine years my mom became, a major focus — and for Kit, too, as he visited her almost as much as I did. At first, the loss of my mom, a beloved focal point, was disorienting. My Center was missing. Bad enough to be grieving, God, without feeling aimless.

But, I have been doing Centering Prayer more faithfully. And I am committing myself to exercising my body and my mind. Yesterday I got some help and cleaned up my office so that items are no longer strewn about. They are retrievable!

And, I have been given a New Temporary Focus, God, as Kit and I are off mid month to Germany for him to run the Berlin Marathon!

Life is full. And Life is such an Amazing Gift! Thank You, God!
