Time for renewal

Have you ever had a Jonah moment? A moment when you were asked to do something you really, really didn’t want to tackle? So much so that, like Jonah in the Bible, you would prefer to get on a ship and sail in the opposite direction? While such resistance might not land one in a “whale” of trouble, it would at least forfeit the blessings that obeying the call of divine Mind and Love would bring. Here is my “I don’t want to do this” moment.

After I’d lived in our house for over 45 years with the carpeting, curtains, painting, etc. largely unchanged, it was obvious that a renewal was in order. Now, some people would enjoy the task. But not me! I had too many other items on my agenda that I’d rather do. But this really needed to be faced. The carpets were worn and threadbare, the paint dirty and dingy, the kitchen cabinets scratched and worn, but my resistance to change was huge.
