A dear friend of mine and I had a phone conversation this morning.  We’re of a certain age, and we’re used to being in charge of most everything.  She and I laughed about age having its indignities, and one of the foremost is “what the hell am I going to do with the rest of the time I have!?” I don’t feel in charge…that’s a problem.

I said, since we both grew up in the Christian tradition, that this seems to be a time when God is requiring that we humble ourselves.  I hate that.  But it seems to be my lot…and hers, too.

Altogether now…do you remember the song? “Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up? Higher and higher.”  Okay, how long does the humble part last?  I’m ready to move on, and my friend is, too.

When do we know when we get there…to the next chapter?

We have decided to talk by phone every Wednesday at 1:00 PM to figure this out.

Wish us luck.
