Available, all encompassing, unconditional and always within reach
Limitless in the tools at your disposal utilized to teach
Out on the back paddock bird songs in the background,
ambient sound fades into a whisper as meditations on God’s Love prevail.
Thinking of things I’ve read…taken in…written and shared.
Have I been responsible in the stewardship of these things?
Should I repent? retrieve? Delete? Let stand?
Can I live with what I’ve released to be seen?
Mindful that Jesus lives in me.
Though created in God’s image, I am not Jesus.
I fall short, resort, retort, I fail, I err, I stumble.
By grace I’ve gotten back up time and again…a bit slower now in an age appropriate way.
Sometimes, those times, when I’ve fallen I’ve come face to face with things I mistakenly believed I towered over.
Laid low, a perspective from which I believe now that I can see more.
There really is no hurry to be so quick to rise any-more.
Up? Down? In-between? It’s all Yours.
Whether sitting, squatting, standing, walking up-right, hunched over in pain or on all fours.
As I ponder these thoughts and wonder whether or not they should be shared, knowing this is how I speak to you O’Lord after prayer.
I can’t lie to you, I don’t always like what I’m thinking.
Can this be of any benefit to anyone, should it be kept private in secluded, secret places?
Will anyone care?
For a moment I relax my writing hand down by my side.
A warm furry beagle with a cold wet nose has been waiting patiently.
(nudges my hand)
Seems like she’s saying to me:
“What took you so long day dreamer?
You been staring at the sky looking at the tree tops
Didn’t ya’ see me?”
This is unconditional and True in your many teaching tools
Don’t I just feel silly now?
Sometimes we become so “fraught with profundity”-(Thena Cullen Smith)
We overlook the simplest things and greatest Blessings.
