Caroline and I made the announcement about "Growing In the Light" and we have, including us, 9 people interested. This is so exciting! I'm meeting with Caroline to work on the schedule for the retreat on Friday. Unfortunately, I've had 'chihuahua mind' when I've tried to read or study any of the materials we have to read. I have not been able to center down or deepen my thoughts. I think this is happening mainly because I've been obsessing about work. When I try to center, I find my thoughts going almost immediately back to my cases, like a compass pointing North. Spiritual practice is just that: Practice. I'm out of practice.
I know grace to be God waiting patiently (and I imagine a little bemusedly, as in a slightly exasperated, "Child, when will you learn"?!) for me to find my way back and I am so grateful.
