Clicking the computer on yesterday morning the artsy screen saver announced that it was yet again my birthday. At first I thought that amusing, but as I do at times I pondered the meaning for the day. My attempt to change it to the correct date failed as I am not the administrator and don’t have the password. And so the day began. One small thing after another reminded me … I am not in charge, not even today when the computer still says it’s my birthday.
The day’s events can at times throw us out of synch. As I am a person of routine it is a challenge for me to be off schedule, and as the day went on the feeling became more and more uncomfortable. And I remembered my birthday. A new day, a new person? When Jesus talks about becoming born again he is talking about our ability to change course and turn to the life God had planned for us all along. Not that each day’s events are organized in God’s humongous binder with checklists and things to do, but that our lives were created to be good, to be well (healthy in mind, body and spirit) to be love and to love. When we surrender our own self-serving desires to the Divine Creator’s hand the sculpting that takes place is wondrous and more than our own plans had envisioned. Patience is required as sculpting the art of life can take time.
Today, a new day, the moon will hide the sun. We know the sun is there and that even though hidden we can’t look directly at it. This overshadowing is temporary and causes many interesting effects of shadows on the ground and animal behavior. I will keep my eyes on those things today. Like the earth and it’s creatures, changes for me can create unusual events, but I know that behind the shadows the Divine Beloved Creator is shining on my day, on your day for all of us. The Administrator of creation whose password is love. Today indeed is a new day, I was born yesterday !
Peace, Wellness and Blessings,
