FREEDOM MONTH: DAY 22: “Hide yourself in God, so when a man wants to find you he will have to go there first.”― Shannon L. Alder

So, this made me laugh…some of you know I have a rather bizarre sense of humor, so bear with me. I read it and thought, “That is so specific…are men more afraid of God than women?” And I laughed, so had to use this quote.

I know that is not what is meant. I just tickle myself sometimes and go with that crazy thought. I am sure this means all people.

Anyway, it is a good quote. It reminds me of the line in Step 3 of the 12×12 where it talks about being the hole in the donut. I love that! I work to be completely surrounded by the donut…which is God. I want to be that. And this is what she is referring to…being so immersed in Spirit that we are that.

I don’t know how to get there, but it has always given me a goal to shoot for. I am far from that place, but will continue to work on it.

It would be a wonderful space in which to dwell. No earthly concerns, no Ego. (I wrote that Eggo…and laughed again…”Leggo of my Eggo!”) Hahaha…it is one of those days folks. I am rather easily amused.

Anyway, again! It is a good day when I can laugh at all this silliness coming out of my brain. And I hope for that to always be the case. Laughter, no matter how the world around me may appear or what my thoughts and ideas might be. There is no reason to be serious about any of it anyway.

I hope that means I am closer to hiding myself in God. Not sure, but I AM having a good day!
