Thoughts for New Year’s Eve: Emptiness, Control Towers and Peace


Driving past the Lake today I notice a traffic control tower.
I’ve never seen it before,
but I see it now
because the trees’s are “empty,”
stripped of their leaves.

Sort of like my life. . .
When the “leaves” of my life are stripped away
when I am “empty”
I see you more clearly.

And I am reminded that You were there all along . . .
providing unseen guidance.

And on this last day of 2011,
Stepping into our future with peace is a gift . . .
hoped for,
even though it is what I prayed for.

Yes my child, I’ve been directing all along and now you can see.
Trust me when you don’t!
