Cottage Farewell

Yesterday, we drove up to the cottage for the final clean out after moving. Ruby was there and gave us big hugs.

The house was floating on a sea of daisies, the air soft and clear. I have never seen the trees so thick and enfolding. I knew it would be a sad day and asked for God’s grace to live it well.

Driving home, having locked the door for the final time, through the country fields, listening to music, I felt so surrounded by grace, soft as a cloud. Open focus, in the Flow.

I remembered other times, like before surgery and having said good bye to our daughter when she moved overseas when this grace cradled me. Truly when asked for, it was always there, but I had to ask and usually one is so embedded in the minutiae of life that one doesn’t ask. When my mother died, God’s presence was there so close I could touch it. I was strangely in the flow and what I needed was somehow provided. I missed it when it left.
