Well, I’m still stumped about the immediate situation, but praying inspiration strikes tomorrow. And I hear you all loud and clear, change gears for the bigger picture… I will.
But yesterday I got away from it all without getting away by focusing entirely on unpacking boxes that were cluttering the nursery and sorting things into various places. We haven’t finished the hauling out task, but we made BIG progress. And focusing on bringing order out of chaos and completing discrete tasks was just what my spirit needed yesterday. I was in much better space at day’s end.
And today we’re actually getting away, to a little cabin in the woods, a family cabin. We will rest today and I will work tomorrow on the two big assignments in front of me hopefully gaining inspiration from the pretty view.
We’re really hoping to see some color.
It feels like fall now, but it sure doesn’t look like fall.
We listened to our old n.p.r. station on-line yesterday and were nostalgic, a bit, for fall in the north country. But then I realized if I had been there I would have been preparing for a big funeral, planning another big funeral, getting ready for two worship services and youth group, and… I found contentment in unpacking, sorting, and thinking of fall color.
And spring here will make the so-so fall worth it, right?
