By time that was all done this was one hot, sweaty, tired old man. LOL So, I cleaned up my tools and put them away...and hobbled into the house and made myself a Tanqueray & tonic. I took my ice cold and satisfying cocktail to the front porch and sat there enjoying the result of my afternoon's work.
As I settled into bed last night a warm, soft, spring rain was pitter pattering away and to that sound I drifted off to sleep. All was well in this world.
Today I woke to weather more humid than yesterday...and looking at the weather forecast we are to have hot and humid weather with thunderstorms through the weekend. The portable air conditioner will then prove whether it was a good buy or not.
From today's Daily Word I carry this thought: "What makes me real is that I accept myself as a sacred expression of God." My interpretation of this is not only learning to accept myself as who I am...but to understand with that acceptance that what I am is an expression of God. May then...all my thoughts, words, actions be expressed in that manner. This is my opportunity to let my true sacred self shine and be; and, it is also a time to shed the behaviors...the thought processes...the beliefs...that have been learned while trying to be other than who I am. I've done well in the American corporate world yet that has not really been me nor what I wanted to be. Now is the time to express my creative self.
I may or may not be the next Picasso. I may or may not be the next Ansel Adams. Yet, when all is said and done I will have expressed all that I am through my own creative voice, actions and deeds.
