An acceptable time

Old chapters ending… new chapters being written as I write… my how the plot thickens!

Maybe because I knew what was coming that the Ash Wednesday reading held such great power and meaning for me this year.

In an acceptable time I heard you,
and on the day of salvation I helped you.

Behold, now is a very acceptable time;
behold, now is the day of salvation.

2 Corinthians 5:20-6:2

An acceptable time… that  phrase catches my attention every year.  I recall Madeleine L’Engle’s book by that title… and I wonder just exactly what makes this the acceptable time.

Is there an acceptable place as well… as in time and place?

More importantly…. am I in the acceptable time and place?  Am I where I’m supposed to be?  Doing what I’m supposed to do?

Power Move Part 2

This Power Move Part 2 is turning out to be much harder than I expected.  There is just so much emotion tied into the memories of these things that I am sorting / donating / packing / and moving.  Memories bitter and sweet / shallow and deep / weak and powerful.

Some I want to hold onto dearly… and others I just want to toss to the ocean and let the waves carry them away… far far away.

This is the acceptable time for all this to happen.

I know that.

Still… the knowing doesn’t make the doing any easier.
