My mind was continually interrupted this morning as I tried to meditate on the energy of God’s Spirit within me. Bits and pieces of my life were flashing back and forth. As I tried to draw myself back into focus, recent events in my life kept creeping in. I realized however that they were the simplest of thoughts which gave me joy. So perhaps I just needed to be gently reminded of how much God is in the simple things. Thank you Lord for this life. Thank you for the ebb and flow. Thank you for the lessons I’ve learned and the wisdom you’ve allowed me to share. Thank you for reaching down even when I was unwilling or unable to reach up. Thank you for the flicker and the flame in the darkness. Thank you for the restlessness and the peace in the light.
