ABUNDANT LIVING

BREATHING THE BEAUTY OF GRIEF

Recently I spoke with a friend of mine who is experiencing intense grief due to a  tragic loss of a beloved.  I too have had many losses this year.  More than most people experience in a life time let alone a year., so I have been told.  My losses may not be as great as my friend’s loss, but I am finding that grief can be a relative term.  In talking about ways to cope with grief through distractions, the thought came to me that we never lose that grief.  I used to think that when that horrible tearing pain of grief ended I would be able to move forward.

PEARL OF HOPE-MOUNTAINS OF FAITH

In 2010, I had hit the track before dawn to walk off my already anxious day. The full moon hung like a rare pearl nestled in the gray velvet folds of the night sky.  I asked Abba to please give me a sign of hope that I would get through this very difficult time in my life.  As I started my third and final mile of my daily walk, I noticed the atmosphere grew darker and the temperature drop a few degrees as it always does before the dawning of each new day.   
 
I waited in great anticipation for the first chirp of the morning which would lead to a second note of awakening which would bring on a glorious symphony of song much like Handel's Messiah, heralding in a new day with new mercies.

NEW MERCIES FOR A NEW DAY

It is a universal truth that mourning lasts but for the evening and that joy comes in the morning.  Upon the dawning of a new day when our Creator paints those wide swatches of salmon pink upon the gray canvas of the dawn sky that those new mercies are created.  They are mercies not left over from a day that is gone, nor are they mercies borrowed from a day that has not yet been created nor promised.  Those new mercies are made uniquely for the new day that has been created.  They are mercies that are there for the taking and are as unique to us as individuals as our thumb prints.

SHINE BRIGHTLY SHINE

Here is the thing about this thing called love.  It can be thrilling, it can be tantalizing, it can be tenacious and sometimes it can be exhausting.  But the thing about love is that it can’t ever be forgotten.  What love people give to others great or small is sacred.  Whether together or a thousand miles apart or on another realm, love cannot be destroyed, the bond is eternal.

Love can be wounded.  Pictures can be deleted.  The physical presence can be gone.  A computer reset and love letters burned.

MORNING MEDITATIONS-THE OWL

July 16, 2013

I awoke early, too early, I thought.  3:39 AM to be exact.  My head and shoulders wracked with pain from a neck injury I incurred this past January.  Not being one for conventional chemical intervention, i.e. an aspirin or other pain relievers of the kind, I knew that if I could lay on the grass, the pain would be absorbed into the earth.  Did you know that the earth has a beat, like a heart beat?

As I lay on the cool grass just before the dew, I heard an old hoot owl.

FITNESS REVOLUTION

Hiking, gym, cooking, gardening, writing, dogs, new floors, more hiking, more gym, gaining momentum and energy, strength and endurance.  It has been three months since the CHM 2013 and I feel as if I am just now getting used to not seeing the BWCT 2013 team, manager, and coaches.  For weeks after the team disbanded I felt disconnected.  I felt like something big just happened in my life and I let it slip through my fingers. 

I found myself regretting a lot about those five months.

On Cow Patties and Cosmic Sucker Punches

This past week of rains flooded a lot of farm land here in Sevier County.  I don't remember having  seen such flooding in this area.  The river at the greenway was swollen and angry.  Waves crashed against the pilings of the bridge and the banks of the river had seemingly disappeared.  The day was gray and bitter cold.  An awesome sight to behold.
 
I was reminded of the winters of my youth.  We children always looked forward to skating on the farmlands that would flood and freeze during winter rains.

CARPE DIEM

CARPE DIEM!!!  Seize the day!  Seize the moment.  It is the only thing we are promised from the time we entered into this earthly domain.  Embrace and revel in the good.  Accept and get through the bad as quickly as possible.  We are alive to feel both.
 
We are not mere survivors in this life.  We don't have to settle for that.  WE ARE CONQUORERS IN CHRIST.  That is a promise that has been given to us.  I want life-the bad stuff-to wear a t-shirt that says:

Curse Cancelled

As I was meditating on the curse that was cancelled through the cross of Christ, I started to think of what that curse really was.  We were made physically, emotionally and spiritually to live forever.  We were made to work the ground.  We were made to tend the animals.  We were made to keep the earth safe and holy.  Creator-the Holy One of Many Names, created us to be in union with the force of the universe.  
 
The cosmos, the terra firma, the plants and even the animals were all made to live in balance and harmony and in that we have the the source to live in complete health, wholeness and  unity with our Creator and each other.
