Being Willing to be Created . . . moment by moment

Good Morning, God!

How good it is to chat with You. I wish it were the very first thing I did every morning. And, of course, I can with just a simple THANK YOU! Most mornings I manage to put my wonderful husband, Kit first and we make time for coffee and conversation in bed before we start our day.

How good it is to open to YOU! Like the instant Joy I experienced looking at these gorgeous red leaves, it just takes a nanosecond to to “connect” with You.

So this morning when I returned from my (shorter) part of our jog I decided that before I began doing stuff I would do Centering Prayer. I used to be sort of purposeful and ASK You for help with this or that before Centering. But. it finally occurred to me that YOU know best what I need in terms of help. And the very best I can ask for — or want to receive — is what You want to give me. Smile! I am inching along on the Pathway to You.

I do have a Dear Part of me that seems to know and delight in You. But, she is gentle and kind and gets pushed to the far corners of my Mind and Days. Oh? You did mention that this morning? Hm. Was that the nudge about my not utilizing my Planning Part? Hm. OH, You mean I have to PLAN in all the THREADS I want!  And an Awareness of You and Your Love is a MAJOR THREAD? Still, please remember, God, I don’t want to be cloistered nun.

Well, I couldn’t spell “cloistered” so I looked it up in Google and found this quote. Thomas Merton said that contemplation is “to find the place where you are here and now being created by God.” WOW!
