I can’t remember the last time I captured the magnificent.
Used to be, walking was captivating, interruptions were awe and for a time, I told myself all the people in their houses are watching,
Saying, “she’s taking pictures of the sky again” or the geese or the sun painting shapes on the trees or the occasional feather at my feet.
But, the geese are eluding me now, the birds have fluttered past all together, singing see ya later, I lift my eyes,
so long, they sing.
Fleeting moments, they fly.
Seems I’ve lost my seeing.
Today, I tried a new thing. Midweek Motivation, usually yoga, stretch and breathe; today it was different.
Something akin to tai chi, an intentional exercise in noticing the physical for me.
The space that I allowed the settling of my intention, I decided “assurance”, was my belly.
With a weighted pillow holding me secure, I listened as the instructor suggested imagining the flow of river from belly, limbs and feet river to ocean, making space free and pathways clear.
And then an exhale, the intention, the sought after thing, “assurance”, a reply was an echo and I responded, thoughtfully, “I have it.”
Then, prompted to consider that place that held your intention, is there a change?
Yes, a lightness, a making for more space.
The space, it changed.
I considered the skies without bird, the moments I missed seeing the geese and the wide, wide spaces God has shown me of late, His intention.
I believe there’s room, room to grow, space to be taken up in new rooms by me.
I’m certain there’s room.
“…confident I will see the Lord’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living.”
Psalms 27:13 NLT
