The goodness and delight of my life comes quickly to mind when I read the psalm for today (BCP) this 1/11/11. Ps. 56
Have mercy on me, O God, for my enemies are hounding me; all day long they assault and oppress me. They hound me all the day long; thruly there are many who fight against me, O Most High.I don't feel enemies this day and for that I am grateful. Yet I pray for Rep. Giffords as she struggles to return from serious brain injury after being shot on Saturday. I think of those who must hide each day from enemies and those who hide from creditors. Grant them safety and peace, O God.
My simple 'struggles' are to find time to show our house to the many people who responded so quickly to our Craig's List ad. To get all the regular sermon/worship work done before leaving for the church retreat on Friday, and to get several visits, meetings and appointments into the week also. All this while I pull myself away from Ken Follet's "World Without End"; which is NOT easy to do. This book is captivating!
So, life is good and I'm grateful on this day a blogger I follow called the "Day of one-ness". I still realize that it can take only a call, a fall, or a crash to turn life upside-down. May I remember those who struggle this day and add the oneness of my contentment to their lives of struggle and hope it brings some calm.
