September 11, 2009

This is a photo from my 3 mile run/walk this morning. It is a glorious September morning. There was a moment, running downhill, the sun on my face, I felt such joy in my heart - it occurred to me that I haven't felt this way for a while. The other night, I was perfectly still in my bed, listening to crickets, and felt peace in this same overwhelming way. But this morning it was joy.

And soon it will be the combination of feelings that happen when I am late for work because I surely will be. I am now sitting at my computer, still in my running skirt, dripping sweat, drinking my G2 - when I need to be at work in 8 minutes.

I will get there pretty soon.

And no, I did not can peaches last night either. They are ripe and gorgeous today, but I am not promising to get them done tonight. It is, after all, Friday. Friday, September 11, 2009.

It's nice to have that feeling of peace and joy when in the moment I know that all is right with me.

I'm so glad you got that respite - peace seems to be a theme for today - how nice...

Peach jelly or preserves maybe?

Blessings and aloha...

I found your post/blog after following around a couple of people who are resonating with me, like Tall Karen. I loved your feeling of joy and your feeling of peace. Lately I've been noticing that certain moments in my life make me say to myself: This is perfect! It is like a prayer to my Higher Power, acknowledging his grace and mercy in the small lovely moments of my life. This is the still small voice of spiritual well-being. When I am in tune with it, my attitude of gratitude increases exponentially. No matter how small the moment of perfection is, it is still a moment of serenity and joy, and peace too. Your blog today made me think of that, and I appreciate you. Please visit my new blog and see if we have something in common. I am looking to connect with people like you. Thanks for this spiritual moment. Chris A.
