Just let the notes fall where they may.
He was still chuckling about it when he walked down the garden path.
because it has such deep meaning for me.

and perhaps me know how you get on?
The last couple of years I have adopted the practise of
finding a word of expectancy
at the beginning of a new year.
Last year the word "Glory" led me into 2013,
and yes, there has been glory a-plenty,
though I am ashamed to say
I have often only seen it in retrospect.
Today in my meditation I realised the word
was resonating at a deep level.
I hadn't been looking for a word,
or even thinking about it this year,
but there it was,
It sparkles with sheer opportunity and invitation,
and far from suggesting a chance to take license
to me it seems rather daunting
in it's uncompromising openness.
Still, it's something I have striven towards
for the longest time;
especially in facing down fear,
and one of my dearest scriptures is Gal 5:1:-
" It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.
Stand firm, then,
and do not let yourselves be burdened again
by a yoke of slavery".
So as the saying goes,
If not now, when?
