everyday stuff

The little everyday stuff is where it’s at. While waiting for momentous happenings and special occasions, I miss, for the most part, the beauty all around. The glory of the incarnation is shouting for me to notice. One of my favorite thoughts from The Color Purple is the idea that God is always trying to please us and when we don’t notice, God is “pissed off.” While I don’t agree with the idea that God gets angry with us, I sense a disappointment. God wants us to sing praises for all of creation—colors, sounds, thoughts, feelings, tastes—everything. The glory of the incarnation is in all human experience, sorrow and pain as well as joy and ecstasy. The greater my capacity to embrace and bless it all, the more real is the presence of the Christ in my life and to the world.

About dmdubay

Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon. Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.
