Like the poppy boutonnières associated with Memorial Day, their images on canvas appear indefinite.
Their abundance is intoxicating!
I admit to struggling at times with a (mis)perception of lack … becoming unnecessarily anxious when household staples wane or economic “what-if’s” grab hold of my conscious.
My G.M. is fond of reminding her team, "Perception is Everything." How much better, then, to realign my focus, to the Source of all things!
He did not teach us to pray, “Give us this day, a bakery.”
Rather, our daily bread.
In her book, “Work in Progress”, the amazing Kristin Armstrong reminds us, “…our God equips us mightily, but He does it in an ‘on-demand’ sort of way. We are supplied just enough for where we are right now … but not enough for us to rush on ahead without Him. We have to stay connected to the Source if we want to ensure our supply.”
I’ve seem stuck in rut of late, re. nourishment. Sooner or later, everyone returns to that place where their bodies are nourished. OK. That being the case, then why do some folks stray from those places where their Souls are nourished?
Being without a nearby “home” congregation, I want to (belatedly) thank Charlotte, Ginger and all of you for allowing me a venue in which to nourish my Soul!
Have a safe holiday weekend!
