A Thank You Note To God

 

Just saw a writing prompt on Facebook (a source for many of them these days). Someone had a beautiful sunset image on their page with the words “A Thank You Note To God” under it and it reminded me that there are times when I forget all of my blessings in the midst of life stuff happening. At the moment, I am lying down with an ice pack under my left knee. It has been stiff and ouchy for the past week or so, and even though I walk and work out several times a week, it still feels like a rubber band that has been pulled too tight. Earlier today, my computer charge cord shorted out and I was grateful that it waited until I had unplugged it from the laptop  before it sizzled and sparked. A few times during the day, I experienced frustration that inflow of abundance hasn’t been keeping pace with outflow and yet I know that I am always taken care of and provided for by a generous Universe. I had the satisfaction of meeting with clients at my day job as a recovery counselor in an outpatient drug and alcohol rehab. I enjoyed being interviewed on a Blog Talk radio show tonight. My debut article for the Huffington Post was published today. I am getting together with kindred spirit/soul friends this weekend. I am still, little by little doing repairs and renovations on  and around my house so that it feels like a haven for me and for all who enter.

Tonight I sat on my back deck and watched the sun set, catching the early evening, late summer breeze, with the serenading cicadas ushering me into a state of slowing down. I lit the twigs and small fallen tree branches in the fire pit and listened to them crackle and the flames leap. I sighed with a need to let go of expectations for how I (in my infinite wisdom) think life should be and instead, accept life on life’s terms, knowing that all is in Divine order.

For all of these things and so much more, I say a profound thank you to God/Goddess/All That Is~

Hurt People Hurt People?
Lately, I have been pondering this conundrum: Why do people make violence acceptable? I see so many photos and videos of people hurting animals and people, images of abuse that whoever shot the films somehow think is cool. I understand why folks post them so that someone can identify the perpet

Make Your Life Spectacular
    A few days have passed since the world heard the devastating news that someone who entered their lives and lodged in their hearts (even if they never met face to face), had succumbed to the depression that had followed him for much of his life. When Robin Williams died, so too di

When Lives Touch
    I have been pensive lately for many reasons. The first is that I am still in relatively new life renewal mode. Two months ago, I was lying in a hospital bed with all manner of accutrement attached to my arms; beeping and chirping away. A pin hole was poked into my right wris

Good Morning, Robin
      It's now 5:20 a.m. and I've been awake for nearly an hour. Like most who heard or read the news yesterday that one of the most prolific actors and comedians 'left the building' by his own hand, I have experienced a myriad of emotions. My initial reaction- as my fath
