Inside the G-d Box

This morning, as I sat outside sipping my tea and getting ready for my day at work, I came across an article in Real Simple magazine called "Inside the G-d Box"

The author of the article, Mary Lou Quinlan, described her mom's way of dealing with questions, problems, and concerns by writing down a simple note to G-d on whatever paper was handy, and dropping it into what she called her G-d box.  By the end of the article, I had tears in my eyes.  This simple practice had allowed her mom to deal with issues big and small, by asking and then leaving the results in G-d's hands.  So simple, and yet so powerful.

In the light of my current concerns and issues, I think this message came at the perfect time.  It's time for a G-d box of my own.

I'd encourage you to click through to the full article...it's well worth the read.

Sounds like a great idea and I'll head over and read the full post in a moment. I'm curious though. Why G-d? I guess maybe I need to read your about page but if there's a quick answer and it's not here on your blog, I'd love to hear it.

Other than that, all the best with your own G-d box. I hope it helps with the stuff you're going through,

OK, I understand. Apologies. I should have read your sidebar before posting the comment. x

Yeah, El, it's a way of showing respect for the name of the Creator, by not writing it out completely in a casual context. In a prayer or something like that, yes. But otherwise, I keep it special by inserting the "-"
