When I checked my calendar this morning, I noticed that in addition to the commitment to write this blog, I also need to cook enough enough pasta for 50 women and children as part of a meal for our local women’s shelter. This made me chuckle, but both are service activities, neither should be difficult, and I’ll feel really good when both are complete and out of the house!
Cooking pasta is easy, but what do I have to share? I’d like to write something profound, but really all I have is experience, strength and hope. Well, I have a lot of experience and massive amounts of hope, but the only strength I have comes directly from my loving Higher Power, when I open my mind and my heart and listen.
Sometimes I feel so sorry for my Higher Power! Every morning, I ask HP what he wants me to BE, and, based on that, what he wants me to DO. I always get an answer to the BE part of the question and then good orderly directions about a plan of action for the day. But sometimes I get over involved in the doing and self-will takes over and I forget the prime directive and my day doesn’t go as smoothly as it could. That’s when, if HP and I are communicating, I can stop and listen and ask for a renewal of the strength I need to fulfill HP’s will for me. HP never fails, and has an infinite amount of strength to give to me. It’s my job to accept it and use it. Thank you HP, the source of my strength.
