I slowed to a stop at the red light and watched as a young man carrying some take-out food walked out onto the cross walk with a guiding stick as his eyes. As he began walking though, an impatient truck driver rushed and cut the man off before he got to the other side of the road.

I found it amazing that the blind man knew to stop and good thing he did.

Just when I thought the scene had played-out, a bicyclist pulls out onto the cross-walk teasing and mocking the blind man who, by this time, had walked himself on the curb and continued in stride as my traffic light turns green. My heart stung. I hurt for the man who probably gets overlooked, under-appreciated and mocked more times than I beheld, and I saw the whole thing. I couldn't have done a thing, but drive...

Perspective wake-up call: There I had previously thought that things were unsettled in my life, that I ached because there are things I am unable to do in my life right now... And there I was DRIVING because I could SEE a green light.

Gina, bring yourself back to the reality of looking beyond your nose and that you are blessed beyond what your senses could possibly absorb! Be grateful!

August of wind...

"And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake into pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind, an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake, a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire, a still small voice." 1 Kings 19:11&12

And thus it is for me. I find it quite ridiculous that it takes me "over-and-over-again" to realize how God speaks to me. My desires eventually line-up with His, it just takes me a while... longer than it should; I'm just glad I'm not as slow as I've been in the past. I think it helped that I recently went to Florida and thought about nothing staring at the ocean. It's so grand, it takes anything you seem to fret with, soaks it up and rolls it back into it's waves. There is nothing too worrisome for the most powerful.

I'm so happy that the peace has finally settled and here I am in Ohio for a little while (at least until May). One of my goals has been to get my Yoga certification and FINALLY I am going to start the program in Sept. and it goes until May. I still find it hard to believe that I'm actually going to be doing this! I've been talking about it for years! However, there are a few things that will be changing that get me a bit unsettled... my job at OSU will be ending beginning of Sept., I would like to go to school since I know I'll be staying here for a bit... etc...

Or maybe it will get entirely switched again and none of these things will be as they are planning. It's been known to happen.
This is Gina's life after-all...
