Can you imagine God saying that? God, The Ultimate Multi-Tasker?
Our tiny planet is undergoing a gigantic transformation. Did anyone forget that? Thankfully, this Divine Power is ever present – beyond our understanding.
All these planetary events, natural or otherwise, provide room for us to exercise our wills. Is God the instigator of every miniscule and massive event in our lives? Why would we be given life, then have to live like robots? What would possess an Infinite Presence to create such wondrous complexity to live as pieces of machinery?
Ask a parent for the answer. Go to the seasoned heart of a mother or a father. Authenticity is borne from living experience. As a non-parent, I can speak the same words contained in a parent’s answer, but I know parents hear what’s missing. I am not able to manufacture the feeling.
Even if a child’s will is a pox on the peace of a parent’s life, it is an in-born fact of life. Whether we take the high road or just do what we can to survive for that moment, we have all the power needed to deal with anything that life presents. The outcome may not be what we envision, but eternity is ours.
It takes one simple act to find our answers: Go within. Find the answer and feel it. You’ll know the right answer. It’s the one washed with virtues like peace, joy or contentment. It is unmistakable. Does the simplicity scare you? If it does, carry on looking outside yourself. Eventually, it will be obvious that going outside means ending up with more questions.
Two women prompted this post. Both have used their wills incredibly.
Neither one is saying, “I’ll be with you in a minute…”.
One, SuziCate, is waiting out the wrath of Hurricane Irene. SuziCate’s blog, “The Water Witch’s Daughter”, shows that SuziCate has done all her “do” things in facing a hurricane. She has also done her inner work. Her calm strength shows in her writing. Her attitude and her tone shine through the electronics just as clearly as her beautiful smile in her profile picture.
SuziCate, I’m still holding you in prayer.
May you be given all you need to come through this safely.
The other woman is Alana who discovered a 7 year old girl, in England who is very likely being sexually abused by her parents.
Alana used to live on my home island. She was a Registered Practical Nurse at our small, but exceptional hospital. Circumstances caused her to move back to her home in Ontario. She began another passion – producing natural products called Inspire Aromatherapy. We stay connected through Face Book.
What about this child in England? Alana’s heart speaks profoundly through her Face Book comments:
Alana: ((August 22, 2011) I found an INTERNET PEDOPHILE last night. I traced his IP address to the UK and Ive called the local authorities here. The police are coming by this afternoon to take an official statement from me. Husband and wife performing sexual acts on their 7 year old daughter. I got written evidence of it saved and printed off. If I can save just ONE little girls life, my time on earth was well served.
LS: Good job!! Were you searching for pedophiles on purpose or did you just discover them by accident??
Alana: He was in a chat room i was in asking if anyone was into incest, so started prying and low and behold he spilled everything to me… I don’t search for them, L., although I may start. I always keep my eye out for them tho…
MV: OMG…I hope they get her out of there. Keep on top of this and don’t let them brush this aside. Good work.
Alana: Ya im not going to stop till its dealt with, and from previous experience with this sort of thing, ive seen it work a few times so finger’s crossed…
(A number of responses ensued, praising Alana for taking action)
Alana: (August 25, 2011) update as of today… I’ve made a statement with the police, they even have my computer, but all worth it, one step closer to saving her ♥ They think they will be able to locate him based on my evidence! God, I hope so!!
SuziCate and Alana,
I’ve been told that, as a human being, I am a composite of the five closest people in my life today.
Today, I count you as two of my five.
May I live up to our friendship.
I will not say, “I’ll be with you in a minute…”
Addendum: August 28, 2011 – Do prayers get answered? I prayed and visualized that Hurricane Irene become tamer and downgrade to a lesser storm. Read SuziCate’s blog after the storm HERE.
