While waiting on the porch…

I have been waiting on the porch, for such a long time.
What have I been doing while I’ve waited?
I have been very busy.

1. I checked the driveway, yes, free from poison oak and stinging nettles
2. I checked the porch foundation, yes, secure and constant.
3. I swept down cobwebs of discouragement,regret and disappointment.
4. I washed the window to keep a clear vision.
5. I kept the steps de-iced with warmth, forgiveness and compassion.
6. I sat on the porch chair and prayed.
7. I washed the steps with tears.
8. I was watchful, even when busy, glancing out the window.
9. I paused often, listening for a knock.
10. As I looked down the road, I looked up.

The best part of waiting on the porch was opening the door and saying,

“Come in! I’m glad you’re home!”

MEXICO!

Sounds like a good idea…So I will start.

I just got back last night from Mexico. A group of the young people went down to help the saints for a week. It was a good trip, we were able to get a lot done and have tons of fun. But more than all the fun and laughter, I was impressed by the contentment of the saints. They have so little and yet they are happy. No they don’t sit and do nothing about their situation, they are busy in their lives doing their best, but it appears that there is not a need for all the extra stuff that we deem necessary. They are content and can live with the bare necessities.

It challanged me, to be content with what I have and not expect or demand those things that are just comforts. No I don’t have to change my living condition or sell off everything that I have, but I don’t have to always the very best and most comfortable surroundings to be content and happy.

It is good to be back home, but I will go back to visit. The saints are sweet and very welcoming and their beaches are wonderful. :-}
