I sat there as if in a warm bubble bath soaking up the kindness, for truly it seemed like ages since I had received that kind of help. Some of us learned as survival methods that help wasn't coming, so we had to take care of ourselves and soldier on. Sometimes we are attached to the idea that things will be hard. This sad perspective is truly heartbreaking. Imagine putting that kind of yoke on a young child.
What if the belief in struggle could be washed out of our hair as we made room for possibility? What if suddenly we became wide open to wonder, believing that provision and help was effortlessly drawn to us. Sudsing up disappointment, and despondency takes no faith at all. However, I have chosen to let go of the limitation of struggle and instead saturate myself in the belief that every good thing is available and provided for us by a Loving Father, in His timing.
As my sister and I make plans for hosting an upcoming women's retreat we are considering all of the possibilities, including renting a Porta-potty for additional facilities at the beautiful barn where wonderful art exploration will take place.
This week as I was high up on the third floor of a coffee shop, looking out a large window, I noticed a huge crane moving not one, but two Porta-pottys across the sky and dropping them effortlessly on site. My heart raced with glee as I giggled and acknowledged the ability to choose openness toward the good gifts of kindnesses, love and generosity in whatever form they arrive. It's a good day when you get excited about a Porta-potty!
"You can rid yourself of every negative and un-toward condition by your recognition of God within and God without. Recognizing God as walking in; talking in you; seeing in you; hearing in you; feeling in you; tasting in you." Walter Lanyon
How are you challenging your limiting beliefs and 'un-toward' condition and moving into faith, hope, love and possibility?
