I’m Working On It…
I hope the third time will be the charm with this exercise (Escape from Egypt, see previous posts for more info). And even if it doesn’t end up charming me, I intend to finish it and learn from it.
My work is my prayer. It is a form of meditation and an immersion into creation that opens my heart to God. The ears of my heart (I know of no other way to say that) become tuned to listening for the promptings of the Spirit.
My work may not be successful in a conventional manner, my success is in the doing of it and not in the being of it. The fact that I labor is enough for me right now and it is all that I have to offer. I can only hope that what I offer, eventually, will be the beauty that I seek, but for now, I am content that it just is.
“For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.” -St. Therese of Lisieux
TODAY’S EXERCISE: 1.5 miles uphill and down, plus cooking, washing clothes and dishes, and thanking God that I CAN.
