Got Plans

Last evening as Kim was turning her business world upside down joining Etsy, I gave myself a headache worrying about everything that could go wrong. I didn't say anything to her of course; I trust her instincts in these matters. But I couldn't stop my mind from from just mulling over the old adage if it ain't broke, don't fix it. The headache lasted all night until during my morning meditation when I came across a passage in one of my favorite books which read; "If you are afraid, it means that you don't trust that God has a plan for you". All of my intentions are focused on learning all I can about this existence and bringing the divine within all of us into my daily life. I have to trust that those intentions will lead me to where I am supposed to go.

I enjoy your blog very much; I hooked in thru Kim's site. I am not a beadist but I adore her beads and philosophy. I am somewhat a Christian who in my heart of heart believes in God, Jesus and least I try...sometimes it is hard. Sometimes I think I believe more like you do, that there is a higher being, a higher power, if you will, that guides us through life and that structured Christianity is based on fiction. I am almost 55 years old and still don't know which type(s) of "God" I believe in! So it is so refreshing to hear your beliefs and musings of the spiritual side of our lives.... although why anyone would leave the beautiful, dry, arid Taos for Oregon is beyond me.... Please keep up the blog... it is the highlight of my day.... Jan B.

Jan, thank you so much for your comment. It's one of my motivations for doing this, contact. I'm sorry it took so long to respond but this was the weekend of our favorite music festival. My blog tomorrow will continue in this same vein.

I read this post just yesterday (Sept 13th). I'm loving your blog.

Today, I found out a studio where I teach glass is closing. This was going to be my bread and butter income... and it's gone. I was devastated until I remembered reading "If you are afraid..."

God is like that for me. Always putting just what I need before me. Thank so much for this post!
