God is in control

I went to a Reggae show Friday night--the first live music in a while that didn't involve the more staid and civilized genre, Jazz. It was really fun and the music was great. I knew that I was supposed to be there when the final song of the evening was God, God is in control.

Strange, the mouthpieces for the messages we need to receive.

God is in control and I am part of God, so I am practicing being in control of my body and speech. The speech part is haaaaaaard. I'm a smart-mouth as many of you know. And what I consider good fun, is, in truth, gossip. Growing up, there was a woman in our community that you NEVER heard a bad word from--about anyone. I was always amazed that you never heard anything cynical or snide from her. For the longest time I thought, What a wimp! And now, I admire her-- someone who from their very core is unable to say negative things about another person. I've got a long way to go, to say the least. So, I ask for your prayers of support that I, too, can change. (I've already changed a lot, I know.)

So, in our search for skillful means and liberated hearts, know that change is inevitable, but also possible (smile).

With the wish that you be happy.
With the wish that you be content.
With the wish that you be healthy.
With the wish that you be you.

All love. Chiara/SPKK
