The past few months have blurred by in our busy-ness.
This week, I hope you can press the pause button long enough to take a breath. I know I need to. Sometimes, we have to intentionally work at getting to thankful.
Whether it is work, school, commitments, or the consuming of the season that can consume us, we all could probably power down (even our screens) for just a little while, in order to get a little perspective and consider just what we are truly thankful for. What might you need to let go of in this season, in order to be open to new possibilities, in order to simplify so that you can experience something more abundant?
In this season, we have had our share of good as well as losses. In the waning of the autumn, let us consider the possibilities of life, pausing to bask in the warmth of the sun on a crisp and otherwise cold day, and with our eyes open to the world, thank the Maker for the life we share, for even in the painful or darker moments we (can) have a community of friends to share the journey with.
I am thankful for you, for the ways you have shared life’s journey with me. I am thankful for the ways our community is coming together to consider all the possibilities of the near future that we can have – together. Soon, we will take some big steps as a faith community, but it is a journey toward something more. And God is with us… on the Journey!
