Good Morning, God!
This was from yesterday’s walk/jog. And looking at it makes me happy. Beauty does that. In looking at the photo, I have the joy of its beauty — and I have the joy of the memory of the moment I spotted it. Hmm.
We have inside us an amazing wealth of memories and moments. Moments that can be called up and relished. Funny thing, I have a decided preference for positive moments.
But, just this morning — while in my pre-prayer journaling — I realized that I have Fears that I need to BE WITH. I had the clear feeling that they were like small children . . . needing to be held and comforted. And, it was also clear that — the comfort was not that the feared future would never happen — but that I would be with them if the fears did happen. And that You, God, would be with us . . . in whatever future comes about.
It is this Great Assurance that You are always WITH US (although we may well not feel it) that makes it possible to float serenely in the Now. Floating serenely in the Now . . . ah . . . I’m embracing the idea.
