Happy Thanksgiving dear ones!
I hope today you are nested in the midst of your family, surrounded by your people and all that abundance. I hope you soak there, sit back and look at everyone’s face in the light of the candles. I hope you sit still in the moment and let the thanks rise.
What a joy it has been to journey with you!
Confession: This SLOW Word video was number 5…yup 5. My phone doesn’t upload more than 15 minutes worth and oh, friends, aren’t you glad? This SLOW Word would cease to be a gift if it was any more. But, I had the hardest time getting this particular lectio divina under 15 minutes and trying again is easier than cutting and pasting in a video program. This is why #5 is significant; it wasn’t until number 5 that this scripture started making its way deep.
Sometimes we need repetition in order to receive.
I want to be child-like in joy. I never want to just receive the abundance and keep walking down the road, into the next busy moment. I need to be healed of my spiritual entitlement, and instead, return with a response that comes from overflow.
I want to be one who rises to sing: “I have seen the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living” every. single. time.
Love you all. Happy Thanksgiving!
