Thinking Thoughts . . .

Happy Monday, All!

Here’s to hoping your weekends went well! While Friday eve was a bit festive as I met a few friends for the evening and retired late, I headed into work on Saturday morning anyway. It was a productive day so I have no regrets . . . There is one issue that has been plaguing me for a few years now and it is hard to contain myself from feeling disappointed in the circumstances though they are way beyond my control. Besides, it is a family matter and would involve TMI … you know, too much information!

So, after a quiet somewhat stormy Saturday night when I took a cruise in a very light rain that followed the storm, I woke up early enough for the 10:15 service at Calvary Chapel. Pastor Bob shared stories of how, when he was coming to Fort Lauderdale over 25 years ago, he was met with obstacles that challenged his faith. He had a much smaller vision back then, but through his faith and works, has been able to achieve much more than his earlier visions. He is truly a talented individual with multiple gifts which he gives non-stop. The service lifted my spirits, as the woman who sat next to me got up during the altar call, so to speak, and dedicated her life to God! While the afternoon was calm as I rode to the beach and enjoyed a few hours of meditation and the warm tropical weather as well as a couple of friends who work at an establishment there, I got home and took care of some cleaning, washing clothes, even cooking to retire my restless spirit. I wanted to write some but felt a bit melancholy …

Today, I accept my thoughts of weakness and self-doubt as part of life. (TOUCHSTONES August 15th)

Have a wonderful day . . . and a great week!

Peace,
