Do you like to have a plan for everything? A Course in Miracles says, “A healed mind does not plan. It carries out the plans that it receives through listening to wisdom that it not its own.”

 I’m gradually getting better at going with the flow but, as I sat there in my friend’s house minding her children for three overnights last week, I found myself slightly annoyed. I had planned on bringing them with me Saturday morning while I did my own grocery shopping and then go home to check on my cat. Instead, the snow was falling steadily and the roads were too slippery to warrant any unnecessary travel. Although this was certainly not a major upset, it was not how I wanted/expected things to go. Instead of getting my errands done, I ended up sledding with my friend’s ten year old. The ground might have been frozen that day but my heart melted when she stopped playing long enough to say, “I’m having so much fun. Paula! I really think we are building a friendship that can never be broken!” Last time I checked, they weren’t selling anything like that at the grocery store.

 So, I guess I’ll keep surrendering to that higher wisdom and trust that, for whatever reason, I’m always exactly where I’m supposed to be.

 Let your spirit soar!
