I have tried blogging before and it didn’t really work out for me.  However, I am determined to make this one a success!!

    Make yourself at home.

    It was night, only a few months after I’d begun my skydiving adventure.One of the other skydivers was sitting in a lawn chair. The evening lights had been turned on and he was wrapped up in a sleeping bag, reading a book under the hazy glow. He was one of the full-time skydivers, who had been attracted to the gypsy lifestyle of the skydiving community as much as the sport itself.

    “What are you doing?” I asked.

    “I’m in my living room, reading a book,” he replied. “Do you like the view of the backyard?” he asked, making a gesture toward the rolling hills that cascaded gently in the background. “Sometimes I take my sleeping bag and curl up under the stars in the landing area over there.”

    I looked around, almost envious of his freedom.

    Sometimes, we get so busy and involved creating a home for ourselves that we create a structure that’s too safe, limiting, and confined. We forget about our real home, the planet earth. It’s good to sleep indoors. It’s nice to make ourselves comfortable in our home. But don’t let your cozy nest become a locked, confining box.

    Stretch your arms. Push the lid off the box. Get out into the world. Walk around. Move about. See how connected everything is. See how connected you are, too, to all that is. Make yourself comfortable, wherever you are. Make yourself a home and be at home in the world.

    God, help me relax and make myself at home in your bountiful world.
