Right Now

10 Things I am grateful for right now:

1) God’s Presence, Love, and the Spirit’s inexplicable Peace.

2) Caring spouse, family, and friends.

3) My home.

4) Enough stability (internally and externally) I can face current disturbances without becoming debilitated.

5) Music, always music!  (Right now, Bossa Nova’s in particular.)

6) Prayer!  The amazing gift of prayer: always available, always free, always grace.

7) My cats, coffee, books, and all simple pleasures.

8) Showering!  I’m always so grateful to experience clean, warm water!

9) My dad, and all the people in his dementia ward: it’s amazing how nourishing is the fellowship amongst people who are Just Being.  Exercising my being-present to the Present is such a present!!! Such great gift. Amazing grace.

10) My dad’s amazingly consistent faith in the Lord: what a nourishing inspiration.

I am Christian, married, a pianist. My favorite composers to play are Beethoven, Chopin, and Bach. I'm also an avid reader of great literature, and I like to write: it helps me think. I try to avoid "tribal thinking"; I'm glad and grateful to be Catholic, but I believe all Christians are my brothers & sisters in Christ, those of the Jewish faith are my cousins/elders in faith, and all human-beings are my fellow beloved-children of God. I believe God is our Loving Creator. God loves everyone, no exceptions. The Holy Spirit is growing me in Christ. Other things about me: I can't stand bullies, but I still try to understand their point-of-view; I abhor cruelty, and I do my utmost to make peace inasmuch as it's up to me; I enjoy challenges, variety, spontaneity, color, but I also like solitude, quiet, order. My healing and my bliss is in recognizing I am part of the Body of Christ. Shalom!
