Spring has definitely arrived in our neck of the woods.
Why do I get so locked up?
I recently read a meditation passage in the Magnificat that really spoke to me. (via Mother Mary Francis, P.C.C.) It said that when we are self-fixated, we tend to be static and obstinate, separating ourselves from Jesus because He is always on the move towards the will of the Father. Fixing upon ourselves literally causes us to get stuck. If we prayerfully (continually) shift our focus, fixing our eyes on the Father, we, too, will always be moving ad Patrem, towards the Father. We shall always be in via, always on the way.
I am eager to be constantly in via, always on the way. Now this might seem Christianly commonsensical but I think we could always use the constant reminder.
I get it.
Eyes off me, myself and I.
Forward motion and surrender to God's will screamed
Mobility is good:)
I am free.
Dealing with the unknown, practicing patience...
Yes! I am on my way.
(At least until the next time I get stuck;)
These images are helpful as we see the light of Christ triumphant (being the central image of the Easter season) that rescues us from the darkness of death.
These trees were absolutely majestic...
Watching and rustling,
Like a canopy of forest angels.
Would they reach down and catch the ball flying through the woods?
They let boys be boys:)
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
on your own intelligence rely not;
In all your ways be mindful of him, and he will make straight your paths.~Proverbs 3:5-6
Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light for my path.~Psalm 119:105
There will always be bridges to cross...
But in faith we know that a helping hand waits on the other side...Keep moving, keep moving!
I am inspired to keep moving.
I'm on the way, again, as
A new path awaits...
And the forest is definitely through the trees!
