A friend is a brother who was once a bother. ~Author Unknown
There has been a lot of talk recently amongst all the blogs I visit regularly about the things of God. Discernment. Being a different sort of witness. Peace. Simplicity. Truly inspiring. Uplifting. Encouraging. Makes me want to gird up my loins & press forward into the Kingdom already but life gets in the way.
Like this morning. I was up early but it was overcast & mizzling & like my Star I'm a little under the weather so I fed the cats & went back to bed. I woke to this rather peculiar conversation bouncing off my walls:
"Liddy, will you help carry stuff down to the point?" from Dino the fisherman.
Liddy: " You must be delusional. It's raining."
"I promise you, you won't get wet." Promises he couldn't possibly keep & Dino knew it. So did Liddy. Round & round, like cats in a jar then this...
"Come on, it's not raining any more."
"You've got to be joking! It's raining"
"Nah, that's just the water falling out of the trees."
And in case you're curious, yes, she helped him carry all his gear down to the point. But that's the thing isn't it. All the high faluting ideals in the world are as nothing unless you can find a way to live them out in the real world, the one that has bothersome brothers, pesky little sisters, demanding cats & husbands who just won't live in the well defined little boxes we keep just for them. So...back to the drawing board!
