One small step for man one giant leap for mankind
This week has been a battle with gravity, and at times it feels like I am fighting even just to put one foot in front of the other, and then there are moments when it feels like I just lost the battle and I am floating off into the dark spaces.
The small things have become a bit of a theme sure you all noticed.
The reason for this is because I am trying to hold on to the small things.
Yesterday while it was a battle for me to stay positive I was walking, praying that it must rain I told God I don’t want it to rain in the night while I sleep because I don’t want to miss the rain I want to experience the rain, it was early evening late day when it started to rain an amazing gift, eventually going to bed forgetting about the gift I go to sleep…
Early morning Akin (Kun/ “Die Le-lie”) woke me for he needed a tree, I opened for him and later walked out in the gentile drizzle calling him to come inside, I find this happening funny Akin is well trained by his owner my friend Bernard and seldom needs to go out during the night, and I just enjoyed the moment of the rain I could have missed.
If you know me or have been reading my blogs you know how much the rain means to me, I take it as a personal message from God, little droplets of, “I see you,” encouragement.
I hold on to this today, there is a lot I am unsure about, things that sort of came from the side that I did not expect, things that took my feet right from under me and spinning off into the dark spaces trying to find gravity and some sure footing I hold on to the small things because often they are the foundation.
Things like I love the rain, I love my friends, I am not alone, all the “basic” truths, I know that they are not basic they are the fundamental things in life and what a privilege I have to have them.
Today it was an open road, Mark, Jude, and some good music, one of the many songs that made us laugh with the awareness of truth was Alanis Morissette, hand in my pocket.
Part of the songs lyrics is:
“I’m sane but I’m overwhelmed
I’m lost but I’m hopeful, baby
What it all comes down to
Is that everything’s gonna be fine, fine, fine
‘Cause I’ve got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is giving a high five”
I don’t always feel the truth or acknowledge them, but I know the truth cannot be undone.
It is taking one small step that is unseen giant leaps.
I will not be blind that I am walking in the rain.
I will have my hand stretched out for a high five (well maybe an elbow for now.)
Thank you all for reading have an amazing weekend.
