Good Evening, God!
Sigh . . . we Enneagram Sevens resist pain and sorrow so automatically that it took me the entire day to realize that I was sad and a little depressed. Fortunately, I have two amazing daughters — and YES, an amazing husband, also — and they are a huge help in these times.
Today it was Sandy, who confessed being a bit down this morning, who helped me “name” my feelings. And, she is the one who asked, “Do you have a Christ candle, Mom? Have you lit it?”
Lit a candle? Instead of sitting in my inner darkness? What an idea! Well, let’s be real. It was not an idea that had occurred to me. But, hey! I knew it was a really good idea!
I lit a candle and kept it lit during my Centering Prayer. And I realized . . . just because I can’t imagine a way . . . doesn’t mean there isn’t a Way.
Yes, God! It is YOU in whom I hope! Definitely not me!
