Hi from camp!
Hope this finds you well and in good spirits. My husband and I just celebrated 23 years of marriage together (WOOHOO!) and he is taking excellent care of me and my still broken, but healing thumb. 👍 Thank you, friends for all your well wishes and prayers for smooth and speedy recovery. I’ll say it again–the WP community is super cool!
Big prayers for the wild land firefighters and their leaders who risk their own lives for the sake of the rest of us. You are heroes. Thank you, and all first responders for the jobs you do. God bless 🙏🏻
Time on my hands.
As of of late, I’ve had time to read more blogs and see what folks are thinking about.
There seems to be a common theme running through the ‘collective consciousness’–do you feel it? Remember, we are ALL in this soup together…
Does it sometimes feel like we are going through some sort of global birthing process? It’s a painful, difficult birth. And yet–we want it. Enough said.
On the one hand,
we see fear and a promise
of an easy way out
a brick wall built on destruction.
Nothing here but despair.
On the other hand, limitless possibilities–beginning
inside our very selves.
This is where it all begins!
All our hopes and dreams. Our joy, sorrow, failures and disappointments. It’s all in there–life and death–all part of this horribly awesome cosmic existence! The Kingdom built on a solid-rock foundation. Eternal life. Infinity.
Which would you rather choose?
Yes, yes the physical body must die. I know, it’s a difficult pill to swallow. All of this existence, everyone and everything we know will eventually die. In this, we have no choice. We are born and we die.
And after this?
I personally have no clue what actually happens to us after we die. But, I do have a thought. An intuition. Faith? A feeling? I read it in a book somewhere…and in another…
So folks, remember: we are all in this together. We’ve all made mistakes. Some mistakes we learn from, some unfortunately can’t be undone. Sad but true, ask me how we know. We can’t hide from them.
We can, however, learn from some pretty awesome examples throughout history!
Brave souls who never gave up on their convictions–even unto their death; because they knew the truth. And what is “The Truth”? Better we seek the truth at its source–the very core of our own being. In The Kingdom. A worthy treasure, indeed!
But, it’s dark and scary inside, you say. Remember that little light? It takes a bit of friction to make a spark, right? Don’t fear! The adventure of a lifetime is waiting…
Sad for what could have been, or never happened, or went all wrong? I get it. This I completely understand. Sigh…big deep inhale…and exhale…
Gratitude. Gratitude for this day and from this day forward. Gratitude for ALL of this existence. Joy, sorrow, pain and healing. ALL of it. Try it and see what happens…
So, that’s all today from camp. Time to go walk down to the water and breathe some fresh air. 🌬
Take care and be well, dear friends. Thank you for taking the time to read my thoughts. Your thoughts and comments are always welcome and put a smile on my face.😊
With love and gratitude,
