Plumerias in Winter

Plumeria in winter

Good Evening, God

It is winter here in Hawaii . . . it is 75 right now and cloudy. This week the highs will be between 79 and 81 and the lows may hit 68! Hardly winter anywhere else . . . but here the plumeria trees have dropped their leaves and grown dormant. So I was surprised to see flowers . . . and lots of buds too.

I wish I were seeing buds of Peace daring to get ready to unfurl. I think, God, that most of us humans are like these flowers. We want to bloom. We want to unfurl and bring joy to others.

But, some folks want to be RIGHT more than they want to bloom. So they go BOOM BOOM instead of flowering. It is so sad. It is a waste. Of course, that is how I see it now.

I used to be convinced I was RIGHT. Fortunately I never fell into the hands of folks wanting to point me in the wrong direction. Folks who wanted me to help them stamp out erroneous thoughts by killing people.

Now I am beginning to think that “right” is a two dimensional concept.

You designed us to be connected with You. Connected to each other. And connected to our inner wounded selves. You designed us to love and to care and to share.

So, I am going to pray for those folks who are certain they are Right . . . pray for their blessing and healing and growth. And pray for my healing and growth, too. After all, we all have a long way to grow!
