Soaring Spirits

Have you ever awakened in the morning with soaring spirits?  You literally bound out of bed ready to face the world, or you have something really special about to happen that day?

That excitement comes from your perspective at the time. Our human brain is limited and that does influence how we react to things around us. The hope is we learn to seek a wholeness when we are ill; to believe in abundance when our financial situation is tight; to work with the knowledge we have gained in our lifetime to be wise in our decisions.

Last few weeks I have been struggling with a confused state of mind. (My siblings would probably say I stay this way...) but usually I am very directed and assertive like my father and mother.  I am learning to sit back quietly and find that oneness with God. It is only from Him that I can reconnect and find that joy to have soaring spirits when I wake from the night.

Emails from friends have really been uplifting to me this week. I am seeing things differently as I pray and sit back and take in the abundance in my life and the infinite possibilities ahead. The depression I was in was fed by the hot hot weather and the dying trees around us and the pond losing so much water. Seeing our land suffering along with the wildlife and fish, and I can do nothing to help any of it, but pray and know the Lord will send the rain.

Today has been busy... I am blogging late again. Terry worked on some tile in the kitchen and will finish it up tomorrow. I painted another wolf pack as you see above for the Jackson Hole Gallery and am working on another 24 x 36 to replace the one they sold.  I even took a nap this afternoon and Ann Morgan came by to visit. I never nap... and it felt so good. It brought SMILES when Ann arrived. Terry and I enjoyed the visit.

God is good. Abundance surrounds us even in the heat.


"The Glory that you have given me I have given them, so that they may be one, as we are one." John 17:22

As always, I love your honesty, Laurie. If you took a rare nap you know that something was out of sync. Your comments about dying nature have helped me understand some of my recent mood too. I hope for you that the rest of the week brings more joy and more clarity.
