My life is full of in-between times. What I do with the in-between times is the most crucial aspect of my life, for, without it, life is meaningless. The in between is ABOUT NOW.
In between reminds me of a good friend that I questioned: ” what do you do in between”? That is load full of questions that have so many meanings and can be answered in many ways. Surely, there is so much I can do in between. It is mostly waiting filled with wonders:
- waiting in line
- waiting for the next meal
- waiting for the next vacation
- waiting for the next paycheck
- waiting for the sun, moon, rain, snow
- waiting for faith, hope, charity, health, joy
- waiting for answers to my prayers, signs, and miracles
The list is long. While I wait, so much have happened or not happened, in between.
I just realized that my life is full of miracles from the day of my conception, birth, growing, adding years to my age until the time of my departure on earth is all in between times. During this time, I experienced plenty and filled with gratitude.
As I defined myself:
Servant of the Lord, first and foremost. Lover of all sentient beings. Maurice and Lucy are my cats. I plant my own garden to decorate my soul, nurtures and keeps me grounded. Hummingbird connects me to impressive wonders and makes me feel at home. I am a pilgrim on this earth.
So I created this space to share with you my “In Between Times.” It is a continuous series of:
- from one moment to the next,
- from one thought to the next,
- from one action to the next.
“People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the seas, at the long course of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering. ~ St. Augustine of Hippo.”
“Often people demand a great deal from themselves and their lives and are despondent when reality does not measure up. Milton has long been understood as having offered consolation for this affliction, reminding us that we do not always have a say in the role that we play in the world and that sometimes we must learn to see the service we are giving when we are doing nothing but waiting.”
