Letting Go of Routine

by | Oct 6, 2012 | Uncategorized

I sit in early morning incandescence, bible splayed on knees of last night’s dreams. The chatter of blue jays above harmonize with the dance of shifting leaves by curious cardinals below. I’m waiting to hear the whisper.

Under this canopy of collective choir, I am reminded that communion doesn’t only happen when the table is set with fine china and sparkling silver. It happens when the house is strewn with living and a neighbor shows up with a casserole you weren’t expecting.

He often shows up like snow in the middle of summer. Listen.

This is the sixth post in the series 31 Days of Letting Go. You can read the collective here. If you are a writer, I invite you to link up any post you’ve written on the theme of letting go in the comments here on Redemptions Beauty every Friday this month.  Subscribe to receive the series in your inbox or feed by adding your address in the side bar under Follow Redemptions Beauty.

    I think what you keep teaching me, Shelly, is to expect the unexpected….because it’s *God* for whom we are listening and watching, afterall! Have an anticipatory weekend, Shelly! You just don’t know where He’ll show up next! Lovely post!

      I’ve had an interesting weekend of going down memory lane, alert to where He is taking me.

    My house is strewn with living right now. And you’ve just brought me an incandescent casserole. Drinking in this water with you, friend.

      Aww, that means so much. I know you are busy up to the ear lobes. Praying some rest and peace for you Sandy.

    Yes. ” Loverly” photos and Word. And being flexible while waiting for His entrance to our heart with His “orders” for the moment-minute-hour-day. Trusting… ain’t always easy, but the results are more than good.

    We were both linked at Still Saturday, so I’m glad I got to visit! I’m catching up on some of your “Letting Go” posts. And you have very good things to say, Shelly. You amaze me, what flows out of your beautiful soul. Love you.
