We get the Science of Mind magazine each month and it has a daily guide....things to ponder during a busy day. Today's note was on Harmony. "Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin." Matthew 6:28. This thought struck a nerve with me because I am happiest when I'm working at the things I love....when I'm writing, playing guitar, working here on the farm, or visiting with friends. I can always tell when I'm not doing the things I should be doing because it's like I'm trying to swim upstream....I'm not in harmony....I can feel it in my stomach and time seems to stands still.
Today was a beautiful day in Alabama. The sun was warm but the humidity was low and the breeze kept the temps perfect. Early this morning after coffee, we drove to Dilworth to put flowers on the grave of Jilda's brother. We saw our old friend Becky Wright and her mom. Becky lost her husband last year and I know she is still grieving. I can't imagine what she must be going through.
The cemetery looked better than is has looked in years. People from all over were there walking slowly through the tombstones and remembering those who have passed on. Decoration in the south is a special time. I'm not sure they do this in other parts of the country. What a shame.
After an Irish breakfast, got to work cutting grass, treating the dogs for fleas, relocating our container garden, fixing damaged tiles in the kitchen and cleaning off the screened porch.
Tonight we worked on Jilda's Podcast. We recorded her message, so now it's up to me to make it work.
I know all this probably sounds mundane but I could feel the harmony. I was where I should be and doing what I should be doing.

  1. Hey, Rick: Hope you'll put me on the receiving list for Jilda's podcast. The various ways these are distributed is still a mystery to me, but I'm going to try linking to one on my blog next week...a very short talk I gave at a book festival in Montgomery a few weeks back...if I can get my FTP to act right.

    By the way, beautiful rainbow photo yesterday...
