At the airport, finally. Sun glaring in my face as I walked to Gate A14. Very quiet here. Just a few waiting to board for Amsterdam but there is time. All the time in the world. It came to me today that this trip is about letting go of what gets in my way of being with God. I won’t dismiss my top ten prayer list or all my other prayer lists, but I’m not going to concentrate so hard on them. You’d think it is all up to me, that God isn’t listening or paying attention, that God is just my pawn.
So on this trip I’m going to spend more time being with God, walking, sitting in churches, looking at all the art treasures, and less time reminding God about all the people on my lists. I’ll give them over to Jesus, let Jesus carry the burdens that I feel so heavy but that Jesus says are so light.
P.S. The news is on at the airport. Once again I’m reminded of the reasons I don’t watch it very much.
