Inspired by the encouragement of my dear friend ‘C’, I’ve decided to share a few thoughts from the last few days that I had written in my journal.
‘I feel like a dead man walking.
I can’t live,
and I can’t die.
Our poor P.O.W.’s,
how often must they have wished for death to come.’
If I am going to live; let me have health.
Frenetic intemperance –
Until you learn to get away from that, you haven’t learned to connect with the Creator.
You must learn to ‘sit with God’.
Not be amused, or entertained,
but just ‘be’.
Not church, or any activity,
but just sitting, in silence;
hear the birds (or the quiet),
feel the breeze (or the stillness),
observe the skies;
Rejoice in what God has given.
The following is for anyone who has had to live with one of the many ‘invisible disabilities’… not visible to others that is.
You see a person just sitting,
but in truth I am a person putting pressure on my back to relieve pain,
I am a person in meditation (to relieve pain – and connect with my Creator)
I am a person, who though I may appear to you, to merely sit, am very engaged with my mind.
I am a person taking sun, and quiet reflection.
I am a person stretching my neck and my body (to relieve pain – to free my lungs).
I am many things,
but lazy, I am not.
If I sit,
it is because,
I need to sit.
I often hold back these thoughts, because I do not want to seem negative. People quickly run from the flip side of life, the less happy thoughts.
But interspersed with these deeper thoughts are always the lighter thoughts, the cheery bits, like:
The sun is suddenly (within the last 1/2 hour) not as hot – It was burning my knees, but now it’s not. 😀
Cheers all, and thank you sweetest ‘C’.
