November 15, 2018, Prescott-
As I sat in the midst of a Community Celebration of Thanks, this evening, there was plenty of time, even in the crowd that attended a full schedule of interfaith devotions, to let my heart reflect on what has continued to make this year one of astonishment and the bestowal of divine grace.
In the past few days alone, I have received affirmations in the areas of finance, friendship and health that I sensed were coming, in the darkness of October, yet had no idea how quickly they would present themselves.
Now, to top it all off, comes the highlight of the year-as I feel, but do not physically witness, the marriage of my son, to a mature, grounded woman, three years his junior, but in every sense his partner, walking side-by-side. I will be there, in the Spring, though, when they affirm their vows, in a spiritual setting.
I will have much more to recap 2018, upon my birthday, two weeks hence, and of course, at December’s end, when the face of Janus appears again. The bottom line here, is the value of patience and certitude, even in the darkest of nights.
Our Best Friends, across the Universe, always seem to show up when we need them-though maybe not always upon demand.
