Again, I am drawn to the moon this morning. I am an early riser, and I get to see the moon often. As I gaze at it this morning, it occurs to me that I am able to relax and take it in for a change. I have prayed for peace, and here it is. In these moments, staring at this magnificient moon, I feel contentment and relief. And it feels like I should linger and soak up every last drop. I recently addressed my imagination with God, asking Him to sanctify my imagination. As I grow spiritually, I want to stay on the path that is my destiny, and not make up my own route, as has happened in the past. More than once. Much time has been spent in finding the straight and narrow. Time is very precious. As I age, I want to keep my mind healthy and alert, alive and thriving. I sit still in the dark night of my kitchen, and bathe in the moon's light and feel refreshed and new. There will be no hussle and bussle driving into the sunrise this morning. On work days, as I head into the warmth and life of the sunshine, I am always thankful and acknowledge God for the promise of a new day kept. No rush this morning, however. There is time to meditate this morning in the company of the moon. It comes with a knowing that all is exactly as it should be for right now. As ideas and thoughts pop in and out of my mind, the 'Oohs', 'ahs', and 'hmms, are singing a happy little tune. These are times of great joy for me. My journal and pen are calling me to 'jot them all down.' I don't know if that is even possible. Letting them all come and go is what this meditation moment is for. Thank you moon. I have enjoyed this morning very much.
