From April to September my family and I were busy getting our house ready to sell, selling the house, arranging for storage and finding another place to live- along with all the little, and sometimes big, challenges associated with a move.
It seems from the first we were guided to the right people to help us in this endeavor. A great couple came to take down wallpaper. It turned out they were members of our local Unity Chapel. A real estate agent became our angel in disguise. He guided us, supported us and led us through what could have become a difficult transaction.
From the beginning of the experience I was able to have so many “God’s little Burma Shave signs” (those of you of a certain age can recall these- little signs that kept you waiting for the next one!) I should have documented them all.
And now that we are settled, well almost completely, I took the time to revisit Bandon, Oregon where I had my first experience as a minister in a Unity Church. It was a rewarding time. I renewed acquaintances, met new people and had a time to enjoy the beautiful Ocean beach and a renewal of body and soul. I had so many “little” Burma Shave signs as I drove that I lost count all the way to Oregon and then returning home.
So I am grateful for the people in my life, the work that I feel I am called to continue to do and the promise that, in the words of Daniel Nahmod’s song, God’s infinite love is “more than enough.”
On the whole world stage, in spite of how events are happening around us now, there is more than enough wisdom, resources of all kinds, and certainly more than enough infinite love to sustain us through what seems to be a discouraging time. So let us step back, see things in the long term and acknowledge how greatly humankind has been blessed over the ages and how far we have come. We can trust the process that has brought us this far and can continue to see that infinite love is still at work in our own lives and in the world.
