Off and Running in 2007!

Already this year has been full of renewal, creativity, loss and and trusting, loving and new learning, great new friends, changing my mind, and listening to God.
While the last few days have been what appeared to be fasting, resting and clearing my body, much of what seems to be is relinquishing the need to run.
I see how easy and effortless it is to move fast, getting so much fun from getting lots done.
I notice how difficult to stop and do nothing. Betty Lue

How attached and addicted are we to moving quickly?
How right have we made it to get a lot done?
How important has it been to finish our "to do" list?
How happy are we when we know we have made a difference?

How about the times of doing nothing?
Are they not of great value, too?
Is it possible that we miss our purpose when we forget to simply be?
Can we run right by the contribution and enlightenment we seek, when we are busy?

I am aware that everything…even illness…can be used for Good.
I am confirming that everything has a place of wisdom, when seen rightly.
I am willing to let go of my own thinking and list-making and trust God.
I am open to seeing how perfection comes in all packages, even ones which we may avoid.

I am blessing myself now with the Love of God.
I am committing my life to Good words and Good will.
I am choosing to use these words to awaken me to remember.
How Good life is when we trust in its intrinsic goodness, wholeness and Love.

I am loving you,
Betty Lue
