Go with the flow of energy
guiding you through your life
to life spilling over,
pouring out
as blessing and grace
upon you
and all those
who come your way.

Follow the flow of energy
as it leads you where you need to be,
trusting your sense of Yes and No
from here to there
day to day.

What has energy for you?
Go there!
Do that!

What drains you of energy,
shrivels your soul
dries up your well?
Stay away from that!
Have nothing to do with it!

Where are you spending your time?
With what has joy and life for you?
With what is only dry sand and hot winds?
Where do you belong?
Where do you have no business being?
What else do you need to know?

Whose permission do you need
to choose life
and live to be alive
in the time left for living?

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
