Kicked in the Gut

"If your heart is broken, you'll find God right there; if you're kicked in the gut, he'll help you catch your breath." Psalm 34:18, The Message. I am going to make my first attempt at attaching a picture. It is a picture of my candle. And by my candle, I mean a candle I bought with an Anthropologie gift card 2 years ago. I have been saving it.... for the perfect place to enjoy it.... today it hit me that there isn't a "perfect place"... today in my kitchen is just as perfect a place & time as any. Why do we not remember that today IS special? I am now enjoying my candle... enjoying today.... who even knows what tomorrow will bring. Or if there will even be a tomorrow. During this last 6 or so months, I have said goodbye (for now) to my Gram, my great Aunt Hazel, and this last week to my Aunt Gloria. This season of life & grieving has given me pause to consider what will I leave behind when my days on earth are done. There is much to consider, and I have no great revelations. Except that I hope I will do my best to show Love to those I meet. So today is here. I intend to be present, to listen, to Love, to live, and to let God help me catch my breath & keep going tomorrow. (of course, attaching a picture won't work.)
