100_1455.JPGHoly Parent of All-

I confess that I am acting without consulting you first. There is too much pain for me to wait for your clear guidance… or, at least, what I think your clear guidance would be.

Truthfully, I keep moving toward the pain I see, the grief I hear, the rifts I perceive… listening, soothing, mending, planting.

I feel guilty that I am not more contemplative- sitting in stillness for clarity and inspiration.

My inspiration comes like a firehose because of the pain of the world.

My question is this: is that I am waiting for you to catch up to where I am…

Or that I am pressing down, leaning in, sprinting- to catch up with You?
