So my question is, why is it you are minding your own sweet business when your machines decide it’s time to break down. Is it the energy? Is it seasonal? First appliances, then old school-but-paid-for-still-got-swag-cars, the roof, and finally, my magazine website. The truth is, everything I got is OLD, and I thought, GOOD, but it turns out that some things just get old and die. !Now, I bet y’all think I’m going to use these happenings as a metaphor for this season of my life. You’re right; in a way, I’m dying!!
I’m busy dying to the self that rants and raves when stuff goes awry. I’m dying to the self that feels my bank account and creativity will be depleted by life’s circumstances. What?!
I told y’all about me meditating. That’s my cure – prayer and meditation. I affirm through prayer; then, I listen to become aware of solutions. Then, I do my best to hold on to the reality that everything I need is within the bubble of my high frequency. What comes next? I give thanks for what I got. You know me…I gotta stretch out my hand, meaning I realize my good may come through asking experienced advice, but ultimately, my highest good is coming from my highest Source. Real talk. “Everything old is new again!”
I had my friend, Kathy Frederick, render one of her “Grumpy Old Woman” portraits.(Featured image). I got plenty of tongue-in-cheek rants for y’all, but in truth, that grumpy old woman is finding a hard time rearing her head. My answer to “Why?” is “Because.,and Who cares? It’s all good/God.”
Nothing to say except gratitude...our greatest gift. I feel so blessed to be here and to experience the joy of living.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
No matter how full the river, it still wants to grow. ~ Congolese Proverb

One Reply to “Why?”
Love your outlook and your scriptural quote of Galatians 5:22-23. For I truly believe the Word. Seeking the Lord’s way leads to being able to exhibit the holy spirit’s fruit from within and having the uplifting truth of dying to the old way of thinking………being born in newness.
