Celebrating One Little Word
But I wasn't really connecting with my word. I thought often of changing word but I didn't really have a new word. So I set my word aside.
What I didn't realize when this lovely little word started showing up last November was that the tending that would need to be done would be focused outwardly. My parents, my staff, friends at church, a few family members - each needing something from me. Kind words, a meal, home made soup, a hand to hold, a shoulder to lean on. This morning I prepared to make another batch of carrot-ginger soup and I realized that the washing, cutting, and cooking has become a time of prayer this year. A time of prayer and tending.
Celebrating with others at Ruth's place today.
