Lord knows, and also you know--I am NOT a poet, nor try to be, nor want to be. Furthermore, I've read that some bloggers here just delete when they smell a poem on the way. (Bear --bare?--with me a moment--Oooops -grin!)
In that case, just skip through these two short verses (which, believe me, just jumped out of the keyboard, onto the monitor) and move right onto the Cheerios part of this blog. Who'd believe that Cheerios might be a trip-altering substance? (Not THAT kind of trip, youse guys!)
Western sky all ablaze,
Clouds creating a maze
Through which with stealth
Will sneak the stars.
Think tiny spheres settle in
To prepare, and begin
Themselves to twink.
Light up bright, and rid
The world of dark night.
GOD AND CHEERIOS:
Received phone call from one of PG's sponslings. PG not home. I chatted with sponsling, usually a no-no, but sometimes the Spirit moves, ya know? They live on a mountain in NC. She invited us to spend a couple days with them--porch has 270-degree unobstructed view of beautiful mountains.
I hesitated, thinking...but we could stop there--just a couple hundred miles out of our way--on the way back from our Illinois "Blogger Meeting" mid June...so I said to her, "Maybe we could stop by and I could bring you some CHEERIOS?" (I have no idea where from came that thought, or those words!)
Here is where God stepped in: AA girl told me, "Of all the things in the world without which I could not live, there is only one--Cheerios. Believe me Steve, I'm telling the truth--ask anyone who knows me, I am a Cheerio FREAK! I have always loved them, it's my favorite thing in the world!" (Who would have known. Seriously!)
So I said to her that I suspected God was letting us know right then, we should visit them in June. I will not even ask Anna, we will simply go. It is done.
Do you think God can really use Cheerios to bring about His Will? Or is this just so much bull shit?
So I am looking for other reasonings which might validate our visit, and there are several good ones. Later, I thought of reasons not to go, "And Then There Were None"! Thank You, "God of my understanding". OMG...Cheerios!
NOTE: In projection mode, I can see me reporting our trip to you in late June, writing, "I forgot to take the dammmmm Cheerios!"
Thank you God and AA, for making it possible for me to be alive, to be free to come and go, to be productive in a number of areas in my life, for allowing love to have many forms, all in the spirit of "giving".
I no longer want to kill myself.
Peace, and LOVE,
