My front window is in dire need of a cleaning. Birds smash into it leaving smudges and feathers. It collects road dust from the truck traffic that goes by. It looks as though a cat with muddy paws walked across it??? I have a window washing arsenal. BUT there was no window washing this past weekend. There was no lawn mowing either. It was seriously cold.
I bundled up and went for a long walk on Sunday. There are white caps on the mountains. My son did a bike ride at the Trapp Family Lodge on Saturday. He told me they were riding through six inches of snow. I hope it all stays right up there on the mountains.
My sister-in-law loaned me a copy of Proof of Heaven by Eban Alexander, M.D. I read that this past weekend. I liked it so much that I went to the bookstore and bought myself my own copy with a new Afterword.
I wish that he had not used "Proof" in the title, but "an anecdotal record of my own near death experience" wouldn't be nearly as catchy I suppose. However, his story is convincing--all the more so at a time when I am starting to want to believe.
I watched Oprah's Super Soul Sunday interview with Annie LaMotte. She is so genuine about her religious beliefs and I enjoyed listening to her point of view.
However, it was the interviewee just prior that gave me my "Aha moment." I only caught the last five minute of that one. I think her name was Shapiro, but I know nothing about her. Anyway, she described God as the fabric that holds the universe together. I have struggled so much with religion and even belief in God, but that resonated.
And the BIG news for New Englanders...TADA...the Boston Red Sox won the 2013 World Series of Baseball. I am pretty sure that Mike was forced to watch with his two brothers. The image makes me smile.
