Today has been a day of much abundance.
It was rich with people interactions. I attended a monthly spiritual breakfast club, met two new women there, and got better acquainted with those I already knew. Later in the morning, I met a woman who was interested in purchasing my office furniture. Tony, who we met on Saturday with his wife and children, came by with his in-laws to purchase our sofa, and we learned more about his interesting heritage. My dear friend Karen called from three time zones away, and although we didn’t speak long, we each had some important news to share. Rog and I enjoyed our afternoon ‘coffee vacation’ in our new, minimalist living room.
Financially, we sold three piece of furniture, I amended an announcement flyer for a client (a check arrived in the mail even before I’d gotten the work done), and, I produced an e-newsletter for a former client who resurfaced (payment should arrive tomorrow thanks to PayPal).
Turning to the unique housing arrangement we are seeking (caretaking and other barter in exchange for a rent-free home), Rog found an interesting post on Craigslist. We are excited about what could be all and even more than what we have been putting out to the Universe these last several months; we are awaiting a response to Rog’s email.
After several days of not having a clue about how to proceed as we end our old life and begin our new one, we have felt confused, disconnected, and lost as to what God would have us do. In other words, we’ve been empty vessels, open to everything.
But now we feel Spirit is sending us a message: we are on track, we are in The Flow. Spirit is opening the way now. I think it’s because we have been letting go of so much and in many ways; now that we’ve let go of the large pieces of ‘stuff’, the space is opening up for us to move into.
Regardless of the outcome with this particular housing scenario, I think I’m getting ‘it’: God really does have a plan for us. And, the plan flows with ease and grace, in perfect order, and in God’s time.
What a day. Thank You, God!
