Over the years, spirit has talked to us about timing, about the dream still happening although we don’t see it happening in our time. As we finally get the miracle the dream we want, we often find that new dreams, new thoughts, new goals must still be reached. Perhaps as we get that career we always wanted, the promotions, the monies we think we deserve are the next bar up. Perhaps when we get that love in our life, marriage our new goals is to start the family we have longed for so strongly. The thing spirit is trying to show us is that everything is a journey with its twists, its turns, its new reaching for higher heights, bigger goals, moving the bar up. We must understand that although yes we want to keep reaching high for the stars, we must learn to be content, calm, loving, kind toward toward others especially those who love us, trying to help us along the way. I often struggle , I more often cry when someone tells spirit, it’s too long, I’m not waiting . How do we give up on our dream? When the Jesus was 12 years old , he told his parents, “ I am in my father’s house”. Yet he was almost 30 before he began his ministry of miracles. Even then, he wasn’t ready. His MOTHER insisted he turn water into wine at a wedding. In fact in John 2:1 the historical story reads: 1On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus' mother was there, 2and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. 3When the wine was gone, Jesus' mother said to him, "They have no more wine." 4"Dear woman, why do you involve me?" Jesus replied, "My time has not yet come." The time had not yet come, but as most humans do, Mother Mary pushed the time. Jesus honored his mother, but in saying, Woman, instead of mother to her showed his annoyance. If the Jesus could get aggravated, how much more humans waiting on time ? The journey is long, hard , not easy, but my brothers, my sisters, none of us are heavy.
