WAKE AND WATCH the universe shrugs itself into wakefulness, as night surrenders slowly to day and shadow relinquished itself to light. I watch this display and realize that the moon lives in the lining of my skin, the sun rises with my consciousness, and the earth thrums in the bottoms of my feet. Everywhere I go, I take that sense of wonder and mystery with me.
I’VE BEEN REFERRED to as odd before. Nowadays, I prefer to refer to myself as “awed.” I want awe to be the greatest ongoing relationship in my life. I want to move through my days floored by the magnificence and generosity of my Creator. The breaking of a day, the silence between words, the light emanating from a real conversation, and kindness, truth, love and the apparently random hand of grace: I want to remain gobsmacked by all of it. Rendered speechless by wonder, I wait the next unfolding. Peace, friends. Be awed today.

My awe and reflection. Jan 9, 2018 I wrote: The words that struck the deepest cord with me are; I await the next unfolding. Peace, friends. Be awed today. I await the next unfolding.
Patience I am told is a virtue, and I am short on patience. As I view the president of the United States and the leader of North Korea my patience if any, escape me. I viewed them as dip-sticks. Oh my, I am judging, condemning and anything but compassionate. Mother of God please lead me to be open and loving so peace on earth will be. When I view with awe the beauty of glistening white new fallen snow, the magic of a mountain in purple glow, the scent of pink wild roses, the innocence of a newborn child, it is then I believe. All is created in God’s image and likeness. Take me back to my innocence. I pray for patience to view with awe the prosperity we enjoy, the connectedness we bless and with which we are blessed. Beauty, love and kindness surround us. Goodness is God, and goodness will override power and dishonesty. Let go of my disbelief and trust in myself and the universe. The fault is in my disbelief. Believe in the awe of each new day as it dawns from darkness to twilight to light.
