Mindfulness in Daily Living – Addie Zierman

There are just some people, that when I get to know them or read their words, I know they have been somewhere.

That somewhere may be no where, no real place, or may have been every corner of the earth.    They are people who don’t have to go anywhere, to have been everywhere.

They have allowed the Spirit to move in their heart and mind,  to destroy and reshape and give birth and make whole.  They are people who have surrendered after wrestling with God, perhaps having to surrender again, and again, and again.

They are people who have opened their eyes and seen God, and lived.  (Gen 32:22-32)

And somehow, have the strength, the need, the desire, the strength in weakness, to wrestle with God again.

This week is another blessed week.  Jasna Burza came and spoke at my mother’s group and through her and with her, God did amazing work.  Now this Friday, Addie Zierman is coming to speak with this same group.

I am personally in awe of Addie’s writing and in awe that she can find to write as a mother of two young kids!  I really don’t know how she can do it!  Yet, as I have learned,  while the kids can be busy and crazy, parenting is a wonderful training ground for mindfulness.

I just thank God for so many blessings.  I thank God for so many women and men that have been called, and have responded, to be transformed by the Spirit through their personalized faith journey.

Lord, thank you for bringing these and so many other well traveled, mindful individuals into my life.  Lord, help me be mindful too, so that I may see Your presence in everything.  Lord, help me help others along their journey, as you call me to.  Amen.

Are you a mother/grandmother/woman and want to join a wonderful group in discussion with Addie Zierman?
