God Watching Day 23

"Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now." Matthew 6:34a The Message

So I can't just lay here under the shoes, or in the s**t , or whatever. There are cats and a dog to be fed, clients to be seen, life does go on. And so I got up and did life again today, just like I did yesterday. I went to work, and tonight I went to my art class. I went for tea with a friend and made a phone call. I packed for the trip across the state tomorrow to our Diocesan Convention For little chunks of time there was sweet peace and forgetting. For a few blessed moments I even had my wing, safe, warm and secure.

I want so badly to believe that this is all going to be okay. That all things truly do work together for good and that this vision of good will be one I can recognize as such. I want to trust as much as I say I do but the fear keeps overtaking me and I hate it. It's really good to know you are all praying. Really, really good.

Those prayers continue...for you and for the fear to begin to lessen. (((RDK)))

Ditto from me. I am proud of your courage and strength. It's not easy to get out of bed and face a day that might not be all that you hope for.

Remember who are, Kate. Called, claimed, chosen, loved, precious.

I have a new favorite quote for those who apologize for their tears ... and for you: "The cure for anything is salt water - sweat, tears, or the sea." ~ Isak Dineson which I found on a recent post by GG

May you have as much salt water from all 3 as you need in the days and weeks ahead. ((((o)))) Kate
