“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.”
Papa, today as I cleaned, yet another mess that my children had made, I was annoyed and tired – then I heard you speak…
“I am always teaching, but you are not always learning. Pay attention to me.”
You knew I was disgruntle, caught up in my own head, feeling sorry for myself and focused on works of the flesh. I had lost sight of your eyes and my vision had become focused on myself and the messes. But the sound of your voice brought me back; I caught your eye and my vision became clear again. You reminded me papa, that every moment and every breathe is a gift. In every breathe there is an opportunity to release the weight of the past and to allow new life to flow in. So for now, I will breathe deep, staying present with you and open to receive your instructions.
Back to my studies…I want to get this lesson this time around!
Love you papa, x0
