Friends the weekend is ending. I hope yours was a good one. Now we coast into a new week. Love and peace.
People have rituals that help them get through this crazy thing we call life. How we prepare for the situations that seem to arise is different and diverse as we are.
For me its church, religious studies, blogging, making connections, consuming media, spending time with family and friends. It’s important to have a sense of what is going on so that I can be aware of the changes that seem to come fast. Every day is different, so you got to be ready for that too.
There is waking to the Sunrise to do our days activities whatever that might be. Then there is retiring to rest after a long day of doing things that require our attention. Then there is the stuff in-between. What happens then? It’s up to each of us to figure that out.
Everything is about living in those times where we are preparing for the great feast that is life. It means getting dressed for the things to come. In this situation clothes matter. Whether they be divine garments or more earthly wear. You need to prepare.
What do you do to get ready? How do you live in the in-between?
To my dear friends in Canada I wish you a great Thanksgiving Day whether you are celebrating on Sunday or Monday. May your plates be full, and your hearts warmed in this time. It’s a different holiday this year but the wishes of togetherness with family and friends is eternal. Be well and safe. Grace and peace to you all from Nova Scotia to British Columbia and all the places in between.
To all my friends in the LGBTQ community this is your day of truth and power. For those who have come out I stand with you in support. For those who find it difficult to come out know that you have support and love. For some coming out is not safe and may you be brave. There is nothing wrong with you, it’s the world that is messed up. Grace and peace to you all as you seek to just be yourselves without apology.
