Dependence



Haven't run in over a week. 

It's been cloudy, cold and/or rainy.....other commitments to attend to........schoolwork......etc., etc., etc........
Always excuses......

It's usually cloudy here.  I mean, if there are two days of sun, back to back, my 'people' are truly giddy!! I do miss the sun. 

Before this assignment overseas, I never comprehended how dependent on the sun I actually am.  My moods, my gumption, are genuinely powered by it. 

I find it funny that just around the corner is a HUGE solar farm in an open field.  How does that happen?  I used to think that a solar farm could glean power even when the sun isn't shining, after all, these 'farms' are very prevalent over here.......not so. 

If there is one thing that is a continual training ground in my life, it is that of dependence. What is it that I truly need in my core to exist?  In my military life of frequent transition, things... people... familiarity.... are taken away constantly.  He chisels at my core. I trust as he prunes.....

I want to be powered by the SON....

..........oblivious to any other circumstance.......

..........to yearn for HIM.......

..........alone.
