I had this great first entry, and of course, technology sabotaged it, and it is gone. I tried to save it, but alas, to no avail. sigh.
the issue: my current unemployment the subtexts: *I am a fourty something female with a great degree (S), great experience, great personality *I am a pastor. Without a flock! I love being a pastor, but finding a fit with a congregation is proving more challenging that I thought it would be. * I am a fourty something who can't convince the greater employing public that my skills are wonderfully transferable in a variety of settings. *I don't know what I want to do when I grow up *I have a breadth of skills, but nothing too deep...but intelligent enough to be a quick study **I love hanging out with people, pets, books, and nature. *I really would enjoy teaching again. *I need to be inspired by mentors.
o.k., my prayer. breathe in fresh air, breathe out insecurity I pray for the grace to believe there is something challenging and worthwhile out there I pray for the love to trust that life will unfold wonderfully I pray for the humility to be grateful, and to be embodied with clear, confident joy with the life I have. I pray for forgiveness that I often forget what an amazing life I have. Breathing in, I breathe in Your presence. Breathing out, I breathe out my essence, mixed with Yours, presenting it to this world, this now. May it meet us where I need to be... and may I listen for what the breathe is whispering to me. amen.
