In the Morning Light

Good Day, God!

We have been home for 7 days now . . . and I am happy.  I’m always happy to be home.  But, this time it is home after our third major trip — in a row!  It’s not just that I am having to allow recovery time — FUN does take TIME to recover from — but exhaustion is cumulative.

I used to complain that we humans ought to have some sort of meter or graph that showed us how low our Energy Account was.  (Now THERE is a potential Health App!)  But, I am learning that our bodies are quite happy to tell us — IF we are willing to listen!

My Being seems much more willing to hear my body nowadays.  Well, yes, being sick after the first trip . . . and then having an attack of plantar fasciitis . . . that helped get my Body some Respect!  After weeks of eating the Standard American Diet (lots of SUGAR) . . . I was not at all surprised to find myself suffering from inflammation!  So, it was off the sugar and breads and pastries and cookies, oh my!   And after only a month or two of CLEAN LIVING my left heel feels fine.

Actually, it isn’t just my body that is getting more respect.  My own priorities — as opposed to the priorities of worthy groups or other worthy folks — are getting more respect and time.  Yesterday I passed up a worthy meeting to invest 3 hours of heavy labor in our downstairs carport-garden.  Imagine, God, I have 30 pots!

Now that we are home for the rest of the year, I am bringing my palms back inside.  I love green, growing plants.  Hmm. I love the feeling that I might be growing, too.  Growing out of old cultural world views — like getting confused about “selfish” and “self care.”

So, God, now I am going to go and invest a few minutes in Stretching.   And then I will rest. And then it is off to another “worthy” meeting.
