Shadow most high

“Because it is gratuitous, beauty points beyond itself, beyond survival to satisfaction. We think of it in opposition to narrowness, scarcity, drudgery, and constraint. We think instead of what is expansive, generous, abundant, connected, and expressive.” ~ Makoto Fujimura, Culture Care

What invites you into the expansive spaces?

Reservoir, canal, swamp I

Are you a reservoir, canal or swamp? Howard Thurman asks. A reservoir holds water. It stores it to be on hand when needed. It is a resource of abundance to be shared. It comes with openings for in-flowing and out-flowing.

What abundance do you store and share?


New life is emerging, pushing through the earth with abandon… bursting forth in lush greens, bright yellows, vibrant pinks and brilliant whites

How is new life emerging in you?

On Wednesday…

On Wednesday anointing oil spilled over in abundance. A woman is bringing a respite from the darkness of this week…a powerful blessing, a sign of extravagant love, the pouring out of the Spirit.

Where do you experience that anointing in your life?

There is a wave of gratefulness

“…this can change our world in immensely important ways, because if you’re grateful, you’re not fearful, and if you’re not fearful, you’re not violent. If you’re grateful, you act out of a sense of enough and not of a sense of scarcity, and you are willing to share. If you are grateful, you are enjoying the differences between people, and you are respectful to everybody, and that changes this power pyramid under which we live.” ~ David Steindl-Rast

How do you ride the wave of gratefulness?


“The world has enough beautiful mountains and meadows, spectacular skies and serene lakes. It has enough lush forests, flowered fields, and sandy beaches. It has plenty of stars and the promise of a new sunrise and sunset every day. What the world needs more of is people to appreciate and enjoy it.” Michael Josephson
