“Oh you look so young,” some of you have told me, and I thank you very much. But when my right knee pops whenever I stand up and the left hip hurts a lot, it makes me wonder what the last third of my life is going to be like.

Sometimes I just need to get away and think. That’s hard to do; to get away from routines, cell phone, and everybody else’s expectations. Right now, I’m down on the beautiful Oregon beach again, so I’ve accomplished the getting away part.

Now to think: How can I move on into this new segment of my life? If I make changes, what would it look like? So here, come and walk with me while I try to visualize the life I want for the next few decades.

I want to age gracefully. I want no joint pain in my knees or hips. I want to mellow out, gear down. I don’t want to get angry anymore. I want God to shine out of me effortlessly. I want to make soulful deep connections with others. I want romance and adventures, yes, but with less stress. I guess I want to start doing the things I haven’t made time to do, like oil painting, sharing and crying with friends, and writing my next book. I want more family gatherings with laughter and whole-hearted strong opinions freely flying across the table. I want quiet times in front of the fireplace with my partner, reading good books in our armchairs.

So dear God, these are the things I want. It can’t be wrong to ask for good things, can it? You tell me to ask so that my joy will overflow. You tell me to conceive and believe and so I’m conceiving and I do believe.

Now my request is sent upward. I’ve asked and I don’t have to struggle to make it happen. With a smile God says, “THAT’S MY JOB. I’M GOD. YOU’RE NOT.”

All I have to do is be willing to be led by His Spirit that leads me. So now I wait, because my expectation sets events in motion that are orchestrated by a Loving Father who wants to give me good things. I wonder how He’s going to work all this out?

agingHmmm. Wait. Didn’t I just pick up a book at a garage sale I went to last week, called Wheat Belly, by Dr. William Davis, and didn’t I read something about wheat allergies being a cause of joint inflammation? Maybe that’s an answer for my symptoms of arthritis. I gotta read that book. And didn’t I just signed up for a 10 visit Yoga class before I left on this trip? That could mellow me out and get rid of frustrations.

Wow! God knows what I need even before I do. I can’t wait to see what He’s going to do with me next!

He tells us, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7). Great spiritual doors are waiting to be opened in your life! Hidden treasures of joy lie ahead for you to find. God only waits for us to ask him in. The Celestial Proposal, Chapter 8, Accessing Spirit, pg. 85.
