Deep Excavation

The morning jog - outside.

I couldn't escape the yearning to be outside this morning. You have to know that I usually wouldn't go running outside at 8:30 a.m. this time of year. This is the land of too humid, too much sun beating on you and that sick to your stomach feeling from getting overheated. Not for this girl. But today it was overcast and didn't feel too bad. So out I went.

And the thought, the question of the day, the prompting and searching of the Holy Spirit: how often it FEELS that way. "I'm on the edge ... Lord, don't you see me here? If I take one more step I'm gone. I'm going off the 'deep end' never to be found again."
