Weekly Message from Traceymay

Dear Friend,

We could easily call this season “Freeze and Thaw.”  Ice on lakes and ponds was already nearly an inch thick in some places and now today it is melting again in the warm November sun. Yesterday I took the video below as a way to mark the moment in time.  


Ice forms and ice melts, sun is usually followed by rain or snow, and the ordinary is sometimes interrupted by the extraordinary.  My ordinary Wednesday turned extraordinary.  I was called to a medical emergency and I am finishing up this email at the bedside while my Friend rests.
My prayer for all of us today is this:
May we live fully into whatever is happening at the moment, knowing and surrendering to the truth that this moment will pass and we know not what will follow.  In all the seasons of our lives, the force of love that we call God is with us, in joy and in adversity.  I am grateful.
