The Right Time

To change as gracefully as the seasons.

I had to smile at myself as I was trying to make the bedroom blinds hang level. Gently releasing the left cord and then the right, back and forth until it fell into a level edge. I thought, “Wow Barb. If only you could do that in real life.”

Just by pulling the right cord.

My circumstances are changing, but it’s not happening fast enough for me. The first glimpse was last Christmas and it was like God whispered, “Get ready. It’s coming.”

I know I’m being ridiculous. We don’t end a day in Winter and wake up to an immediate Spring. (We sorta do in Texas, but you catch my drift) It happens gradually my darling. Each day and night becomes a little bit warmer, until we arrive in a new season.

I made this comment to my daughter. “By the end of March my life will look totally different.” It just fell out of my mouth and I don’t know whether to be excited, or scared.

It’s not my job to hurry change or slow it down, but today I want to. Just like the blinds, I wanted to hold one cord in each hand to feel that sense of control with this change. I wanted to see the sun streaming in instead of looking at the clouds.

I want, I want, I want, is not how it works, thankfully. I’m not in charge and today I can be grateful for that. Have Faith in what you know. The sun is still shining above the clouds. I don’t have to see it to know.

The dominoes are lining up, and a gentle breeze will begin their fall, at the right time.

      Thank you my darling. It feels like it’s moving as slowly as a snail, but I’m not so sure that’s very slow. I’ve watched a snail, and then looked away for what felt like an instant. Once my gaze returns to the snail, he’s nowhere to be seen. 🙂

      1. Some things can’t be rushed even when we want to pull those strings. And in these times we learn patience and appreciation for small moments. ❤️

        Ohhhh darling. It’s best not to rush things. I call that, ‘Running out in front of God’. It doesn’t work out very well. Lol The teacher is quiet during the test. I’m determined to pass with flying colors! ❤

  6. This is so beautiful Barb, I feel we are in sync with each other, having a knowing or an inkling into immediate future which is just out of grasp but knowing soon it will be there. Understanding perfectly, wanting to be in control of life as much as we can. I too feel like I am in the air waiting to land. Faith, Faith and patience oh how our strengths are being challenged, can you be obedient, faith and accepting all will be well…. amazing times ahead.

    Ironically The next blog post I looked at had the song of the day as Here Comes The Sun – The Beatles. I love the guitar in that song 🧡

    The reason I am optimistic in spring is because the small changes are all in the right direction. Sunrise is earlier daily, sunset is later. The days and nights are cool, but they aren’t cold. A week ago I turned on my outside taps and washed my car.
    Yes, it has been dark and cold my dear friend but dawn and warmer days are inevitably on the way.
