Happy Spring everyone! We are into the final week of our move countdown, and the house is torn up, cupboards mostly empty, boxes in various stages of packing everywhere. Found a home for my birds and most of my plants, and discovered that making decisions on what to keep and what I can give up is very tiring, LOL.
Meanwhile, I'm relying rather heavily on prayer to help me survive this upheaval in my surroundings. This practice is not natural to me, as I have always been what was referred to in the 1970s as a Control Freak. Sitting still, letting go and letting God are things I'm still learning how to do. :)
The latest articles from the Baha'i site at BellaOnline.com give a brief exploration of prayer in the Bahá'í Faith and how I'm trying to use prayer to deal with what feels like daily unexpected changes in my plans.

I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message -- but it's possible that I may be a little distracted in the coming week. :) I do thrive on your feedback, however!
