Generally a difficult time
1/1/2010 12:11:38 PM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

This in a way is a continuation of my thoughts on What I Believe, but it's not ordered enough for me to write yet another part to that article. Just one or two odd ideas.

Generally Christmas has been a difficult time, during which I admit I have been most bad-tempered. Largely because I haven't been able to do the things I feel I ought to do and instead have been chasing about looking after others. In fact I've got a lot done in my own and my family's life, but my "work" has been delayed.

Actually though, it's been one of the most important times I've been living through: realizing there are priorities which aren't mine, and that life doesn't depend on my own impatience. A couple of times I've woken up in my room at night (my usual not sleeping) and looked around thinking: yes, all this that I see in front of me is God, of which I'm a part. That helps.

Some depressing things, though, such as a couple of friends with cancer. How do I relate to them? It's difficult to interpret what is important in the lives of others.

And I remember a time years ago now when I was going through a lot that was difficult, and on one occasion screaming out loud in my own misery when I was alone somewhere in the car. Things are immeasurably better than that: it's just a matter of remembering and being grateful. And, too, of "praying" (or "commanding," as I've written elsewhere) for others who have far more difficulties than I--but praying only in very general terms, since I really don't know what is best for them.
