behind every story

made up by my

fear-driven-ego

is a

God-Created-Event

waiting to

unfold…

An Observation…

It’s both curious and unfortunate that it takes such grand scale disasters and heartrending tragedies  for us humans to reveal our HUMANITY. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today’s Realization:

I cannot

the

wounds

   made by

only

GOD

   can…

a

laboratory

experiment

 

it

is

   apparent

even to one as

blind

as

   I…

that

nothing

is

here

for

   nothing

everything

is

for

  something

 

every

thought

event

person

telephone call

email

word

idea

   action…

   every-single-thing,,,

   IS-FOR-SOMETHING…

  therefore

I

now

     question

   explore…

and

   use…

     EVERYTHING

 

and

FEAR

   NOTHING

is that of

to the

CREATOR

of

all

there

when

its

   proper role

HEAVEN

and

EARTH

are

as

   Just took more photos of the river…

   the river and sound have such a hypnotizing pull on me…

season after season

   year after year…

day after day

Distant Tugboat…Cloudy Sky – Photo by Toni Roberts

 

my son says

but ma…

you keeping on taking the same photo

over and over again…”

   he does not see the subtle changes from photo to photo

from day to day

season to season

the shifting shadows

the shimmering light

seasons marked

by the

absence or presence of sailboats on the sound

 

the stillness or gentle flow of the waters

the tugboat far off in the distance…

the mood of the sky

the shifting shapes of dancing clouds

no…

he does not see the subtle differences

from year to year

for he sees only with eyes

while I see with heart and soul

this river and sound that are kin to me…

this river that has held-rocked-soothed-nourished-and-healed-me

through twenty-four years of

pain

sorrow

loss

agony

and the

deepest-of-soul-stirring

joy...

no…

he does not see this

gift-from-the-“GODS”-view

with

   eyes-of-love

  as I do…

for it is

my

life itself

that is

reflected in the waters below…

the many

rewards

of 

unquestioning

trusting

obedience

to a

mysterious

nameless

Inner Directive

that places one’s feet

   for one…

step by careful step

along paths both

known

and

   unknown…
