Being alive

“Find out what makes you most alive and do that, for what the world needs, more than anything else, is people who are fully alive.” Howard Thurman

When do you feel fully alive?

Still I rise

Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise… (Maya Angelou)

How do you find the breath and air to rise in the midst of the challenges and trauma of these days?

Come in, come in

“And under the eaves
and through the walls the squirrels
have gnawed their ragged entrances but it is the season
when they need shelter, so what shall I do?” Mary Oliver

What spaces is God looking to be invited into?

A tiny dot of blue

A tiny dot of blue in the grey and cloudy sky. An opening. A promise.

“In our anxiety to limit ourselves to that which we can comprehend definitely, we are losing all that is above, beyond, below, through, past, over that small area encompassed by our conscious mind” Madeleine L’Engle

How do you limit yourself? How does God break through?
