Good Morning, God
Last week on a walk/jog up my valley I looked into the heart of a hibiscus. I thought about how You look into our hearts. This flower lasts for only a day. And I suppose, God, that our human life span is almost as brief as that when set against geologic time. But we are and we are here. And You have put us in Time for reasons unclear.
REJOICE You tell us! AND AGAIN REJOICE! Rejoicing involves great trust in You. Trust that life is MORE than this brief life span here. Trust that there is MORE. Trust that You Love Your Creations.
My wonderful husband Kit and I lost a daughter to cancer before she turned 19 . . . and we DID trust You. We trusted that she was/is WITH YOU! And You tugged me around so that I could look FOR and then AT Your Light in that darkness that engulfed us.
So I understand that Trusting You involves extending my Mental Map of Time and Space BEYOND what school teaches — beyond our human sense of time and space. And in trusting You, God, I believe that You mean it when You say BLESS, BLESS and DO NOT CURSE! When You say, IF YOUR ENEMY IS THIRSTY GIVE HIM TO DRINK.
You, of course, know that is not my first or even second response. BUT, it is sometimes my third or fourth response. So, now I am blessing a man who seems to believe that only he can BULLY America and the World into being “saved” by him. Not saved by YOU. Saved by him. I am, I admit, uneasy.
I consider Bullies to be weak . . . insecure and easily frightened. And frightened people are all too open to evil. And so, I sit here. And I ask for blessings and healings — for him and for all people who want to lead and who do lead — all over this world.
