As I gaze out my dining room window this morning while sipping coffee...my gaze is directed to trees and shrubs in full spring leaf. My ears are directed to the songs and sounds of birds. This is like living in a park...and it is a splendid way to start a Monday morning.
Every once in awhile during the time of transition in my life I get this feeling that I am exactly where I am supposed to be. Yes, there are the fears...the insecurities...that still come with a transition such as this. With each day that passes...this home becomes home.
In today's Daily Word the lesson was titled "New Chapter: Each day holds the potential for a new chapter in my life." Wow. Reverend Maureen Bass (who was our Unity minister in San Francisco) once said that where we are today...at this very moment...is the result of every single decision we have made...even the decisions that we have chosen not to make are in effect decisions made.
So what is the chapter in my life that I am going to write today? What are the decisions I may or may not make today? Tomorrow will be the result of both of those questions answered and done well. And if the chapter I write in my life today is filled with good decisions and with the celebration of life...that in and of itself will be more than enough.
One final quote from today's Daily Word: "Whatever direction my personal story takes, I remember that I am the coauthor with God. With faith and gratitude, I write new chapters in the story of my life."
Let today's chapter be written well with God as my coauthor.
