We’re midway through summer (for us northern gals and pals), a good time to pause for a moment to take a breath before the force of autumn’s gravity takes hold too fiercely, and pulls us into its grasp of programming and schedules and commitments. This might be the last chance we have to pause and check in with our inner divine compass, the soul, and reflect on our inner life.  Here are a few questions to consider as we do so.

What is one thing bringing you joy today?
   The beautiful summer day we had - blue sky, warm temps, popcorn clouds and a quick trip into
   the country through rolling farmland.

What is a disappointment you are experiencing today?
    Driving past a church I served and how that all ended.

When you think about the past six months, when did your soul feel most awake?
    Probably Easter Sunday and even Pentecost Sunday services.

When did you experience a sorrow or regret?
    Having to leave the Lake and family when we returned home. So wish I lived closer to my

For what is your soul most longing?
    A position I could stay in for the next 5 years that doesn't entail driving an hour one way!

Bonus: is there a word or image that succinctly summarizes how you find your soul today? Please share it with us.
    At peace - lakeside with a calm lake, lazy waves lapping at the shore, sun and blue skies.

I'm glad you had some vacation to fill your tank with family. It's hard to leave that behind! I pray with you that your wish for a lasting position in a desirable location is fulfilled. Blessings to you, and thanks for playing.
