Life is showing up and being present. The joy of vacation is fading…the energy of Easter is past. There are days best described by the weather conditions around the equatorial Atlantic–the doldrums. Yet I’m given this day to live and love. For me, surrender isn’t a big dramatic moment, it is a quiet letting go and trust God is present today. I don’t have to try harder or run faster…I need to be engaged and not reach for the distraction which would be my “fix.”
