Good Evening, God!
I’m back after doing a few minutes of Blessing You “with all that is within me.” (Psalm 103:1) And I realize that blessing You is putting Everything in Perspective. That enlarged perspective is having a funny effect on me. The small details of my life matter more — in that everything matters — and I matter. Thus my delight in this photo of a yellow hibiscus that I took on my morning hike.
Meanwhile, the Apocalyptic Future that has been waking me at 3:00 a.m. is being muted by my growing awareness of how much I do not know! In spite of how easy it is to connect the knowable dots — I am becoming more aware of the reality that there is SO MUCH I do not know! Actually, just considering the billions of galaxies is dizzying. Quantum Fields make me numb!
So, back to the small. Yesterday, I named my Solar Plexus as the site of my Blessing activity. Today, I looked up Solar Plexus and it is a real hub for a lot of nerves. Amazing! We Do have Amazing bodies! And I am tickled to think that my wild guess might have been pretty good.
I’m smiling at myself, God. Because, even being a Very Small Being, I still enjoy learning and trying to understand. I am glad You made us that way!
Today, I was still focused on Blessing You . . . tomorrow I will venture into Blessing me. That is definitely counter cultural!
