 Dear readers,

This blog is late because I was unable to access my blog site last Saturday. I finally got the technical help I needed. 🙂

Dutch legend has it that there was once a small boy who, upon passing a dyke on his way to school, noticed a slight leak as the sea trickled in through a small hole. He poked his finger into the hole and stemmed the flow of water until other men were able to repair the dyke and seal up the leak.

Recently, someone told me that I was like the boy with his finger in the dyke, trying to hold something back. The difference is the boy was trying to stem the torrent of water that would wash over him. I seem determined to stem the torrent of God’s love that I fear would overwhelm me. Could I give up my need to control my life and let His loving guidance control me instead?

 I wonder what it will take for me to finally let myself be swept away.

 Let your spirit soar!

I’m out visiting my son and daughter-in-love in Wyoming. We just passed a billboard on the highway that asked, “Are you headed in the right direction?” I don’t know what the sign was advertising, but I immediately found myself asking that question about my own journey to connect more deeply with God. I was so eager to find Him high in the snow-capped peaks of the Rocky Mountains. He was there all right, but I need to remember that He was with me back in Lowell, Massachusetts too. It just seemed easier to connect with Him in the majesty of the mountains.

 The truth is, I cannot find God anywhere else until I find Him within myself. That is the only direction I need travel. And I only need a one way ticket because, why would I ever want to return? So, the next time I think I can find God somewhere outside of myself, I hope I pass another billboard that asks, “Are you headed in the right direction?”

 Let your spirit soar!
