I woke up this morning with congestion so I took an antihistamine. It helped but now I am too groggy to get anything done. The Fedex truck just dropped me off some Pero, a coffee substitute. I have been off of coffee for a week now. I used to drink Pero back in the day. Now you have to order it online and it is pricey but tasty.
As I lay there in bed I considered the things that are “active” for me right now. Most of my old life has evaporated, for lack of a better word. There is one strong mystical connection with a friend across the pond and a few others here at home. Other than that, I am simply in “waiting” mode.
What that means is that I simply don’t know and won’t move without some sort of guidance, inner or outer. It may not sound like a big deal, but it is. It has taken me all of my lifetime to reach this point of waiting in faith.
Some of you know exactly what I mean. I was telling my friends at Tai Chi yesterday that all Vernon Howard ever said was “wait.” There is nothing we can do.
“But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31
