The Angels At 3 In The Morning
September 2nd, 2016
The Angels At 3 In The Morning You know when you wake up at 3 in the morning and you can’t go back to sleep because there’s this problem nagging you awake? I was talking to a friend of mine about just such a dilemma—having to put my house up for sale—and not being sure if I should sell it or lease it. I didn’t want to let it go with all its memories and unresolved plans and dreams. But realistically, financially I couldn’t afford to keep it. My beautiful, gorgeous house had to go to someone else.

And my friend said “well you just had a conversation with the Angels at 3 in the Morning. Those angels. It’s a special Angel Corp that only comes at that hour of the morning. The ones that keep you awake so you can cross examine yourself about the who, what, where, when and why of your life. And of living. Of being. Of having courage. And trust.

I did wrestle with the Angels at 3 In the Morning. On a number of mornings. And it was a mighty tussle. But it ended as it must. With surrender. With letting go. With change. And I remembered this poem:

When you come to the edge of all the light you know
And you are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown
Trust is knowing one of two things will happen:
There will be solid ground for you to stand on
Or you will be taught to fly.

So I’m brushing off my wings. Again.

P.S. Two new pieces of artwork. Finished the day after my tussle with the Angels at 3 in the Morning.
