And now I’m the crier:

I’ve been thinking of this hype. I avoid my friends, not because the CDC recommends it, but because many have been the criers, “Prepare!! Prepare!!” They speak of worldly preparations. It’s good to prepare, but the energy behind it is unsettling, ridden with anxiety. The world has too much of that already.

So… I keep my distance so that I don’t take on that energy. What they don’t realize is that I have been long prepared in ways they do not know… I speak of our spiritual preparations. I suppose that is a fault of mine that they don’t know the depths of my relationship with God. Oh yes, they know the surface, but not the daily walk and intimate conversations. It enables me to have a profound peace and complete trust in Him.

I thought this morning: If we look at it from a Traditional Chinese Medical viewpoint (or Taoist view)… it is a virus affecting the lungs…. our “taking in.”

So I ask myself “Am I taking in… the spirit of God and Christ or… the virus?”

Peace, Love, and Trust be with you today and every day!

Where the Road Leads

Now: The warm breeze fills my nostrils with oak bark that has been heating up in the day’s sun.  There’s something serene about sitting among the pines, oak, manzanita, or eucalyptus.  It calms the soul.  Wipes away the cares carried with me from the city. 

Before Now: The path of the gypsy leads many places.  The salty sea sings its soothing serenade- pulling me closer- tempting me to wiggle my toes in her earth.  Sadly, the solitude sought cannot be found as the crowds ferociously labor to make their homestead upon her sands.  No.  It is still too soon for her peace to crash upon me. 

“Trek on… Woman of the Wild!  Your home awaits.” Venture to the Now.
