Keeping on — Keeping on Growing

Good Morning, God!

I am still here in Tucson –but now I am with my wonderful daughter Sandy and our son-in-law Dave — as well as grandson Ian.

Such a RICH family time. Thank You, God for families . . . people I love enough for You to be able to use them as levers in changing me.

I must say, God, that You nailed me the other day when You pointed out that I am the Oldest member of the Family and therefore all or any changes MUST begin with me.

Me? YES! ME!

Dang!

Who knew that Life would keep on and on requiring more of me? I am coming nose to nose with the reality that at no point will I be done.  The question always is — Here’s what is. How am I going to respond? What am I going to say and do? And will I remember to ask You first — before I speak or act?

I am grateful for very small steps. I am learning that Speaking the Truth in Love — is about loving myself enough to speak truth about myself — not so much about others. Being vulnerable means depending on You to help me deal with what might follow.

Please, God, keep on helping me! PLEASE take my “Mother Heart” and give her Humility! Help me entrust my Heart — and the Loved Ones in my Heart to YOU.

And, thank You, God, that my problems are pretty darn small. Please help me remember that. Please help me praise You for the problems I have!

    Always enjoy your insights. Today, it occurs to me that reading these is reminiscent of our Sat morning Group Reunions at your home and the Lathams. I always learn…and hopefully “inwardly digest” your insights!
