God has blessed this land with a steady rain today.
The gourds on my dining room table add a cheery thought to my day as I watch the rain dribble down my windows. A Postal truck whizzes down the road as I gaze into my coffee mug ponderously.
The gourds make me happy and remind me of Fall and family. Wow! What a wonderful thing it will be to have two families in just a matter of months!
What a joyous day it will be!
My studies are progressing well. A’s and B’s mostly, thankfully. I believe it might be a good thing if I picked up a little part-time job somewhere. At the same time, I am concerned that, similar to two semesters ago I will wind up being overworked with bad grades. I feel like I HAVE to keep going and pursuing counseling.
This Sunday, the priest had a really provocative homily that really stirred me. The homily was about living each day doing your daily duty and loving others.
This made me think a lot about humility and how hard it is sometimes to be humble. It is quite a blessing to be alive and be working towards your goals, pursuits and dreams. At the same time, I find myself asking, is there something else I could be doing that would lead me closer to God.
In the stillness of this rainy day, as thunder trembles and groans across the sky, I ponder this.
