While it's certainly not yet over I want to note that this day has been, for lack of a better understanding, a grace filled day. It has felt enveloped and covered by a gracious presence, which makes me smile.
From early rising for prayer this morning, through some surprises with local ministerial meetings this afternoon, the covering has remained.
It's effect has not been lost on me, in fact there are things I need to explore in times like this.
But best of all it allows me to be a better me, with grace for others to be who they are, and clarity about what I am to do and what I need to leave alone.
The resulting effect is that in moments where I care for others, I am able to be fully present and hearing well the spirits prompting.
and that's just good.
