28th January - Spirituality
Today I will contemplate the source of my strength.
The house is quiet. My heart is not. My children lie sleeping on this hot afternoon. The blinds gently slap the windows.
Evidence of my success hangs on the wall before me. Symbols of the love of friends lie here and there on my desk. Encouraging words are placed about where I can easily see them. Yet past successes, the love of friends and encouraging words don't seem to help me break through the uneasiness, dissatisfaction and fear.
So I will take time out to talk to my Higher Power. I need to hand over, one by one, the things that are disturbing my peace. I give them in exchange for a new peace that can come only from meditating on the source of my strength.
