The winds of grace are always blowing, but you have to raise the sail.
Raising the sail takes energy then steering takes even more. If the strength cannot be mustered we are often set adrift and float whatever direction the winds of change carry us. The strength is within each of us to tug and pull then grip the wheel, but it often takes a jump start to get past the apathy we feel when overwhelmed by things out of our control.
Situations seek to be lord and master, yet without our assistance they have little or no power. Facing the fact that shit happens is essential to peace of mind when the bullshit starts piling up. Do what you can in a damage control mode then raise the sail and go on. The journey does not end at troubles door; often the best part of the trip begins after you walk away from what cannot be changed and begin tackling what can.
I will be gone till Monday afternoon. I wish you all a wonderful and safe Labor Day Weekend. In your time of celebration, remember the ones still suffering. They are in need of all the grace that our combined prayers can inspire. Give till it hurts, from wallet and cupboard then join voices for their deliverance.
There will be plenty of time for blame later and plenty of blame to go around. Gas hikes hurt us all and will be addressed in the coming days. But dwelling on the anger, at this moment, only fragments the energy placed upon the most important issue. And that is to empty New Orleans of Katrina's victims and assist all the humanity that this hurricane left homeless. The walking wounded need help raising their sails, give a hand somehow, you will lighten their load and strengthen yourself in the process.
