I've been having a lot of dreams lately, or maybe I'm just remembering more of them since I sleep in 1-2 hour increments (so ready for SP to sleep through the night!). A few nights ago, I had a dream that ended with a friend needing help. Just as I woke up, I thought to myself that I really did need to do something for this friend, and today was the day. So, I got into my kitchen and started baking. I sent her a message that I would have baked goods for her in the afternoon. My friend was excited to get the food love, and thought that I had coordinated it for the Feast of St. Gerard (patron of pregnant mothers). Nope, no such organization.
But I think what I lacked in organization I made up for in listening to the prompting of the Holy Spirit. The neat lining up of everything was very much a God thing, not a me thing. I tend to have a hard time reaching out to others to offer help. It's definitely stepping out of my comfort zone. So, I've been wondering this week, how many times have I thought, "I really should do x for y." and then not done it because it was out of my comfort zone? How many moments have I missed out on being an ambassador of kindness when I was called? Something I'm really thinking about this week; am I stepping up to the Spirit's calling? Big thing or small thing, I can't but feel that I might need to tune my ears a little more carefully.
