“You will Always and All Ways be welcome to those whom you Belong to.”
Since writing this post three years ago, we have been blessed with our own version of Mary’s “Joseph.” Ed we are grateful to you every day!
As we enter this time of Thanksgiving, may we remember:
When we live Life as a prayer, our actions uphold and support the belief in, and realization of, the inherent worth and dignity of every person even if, and especially when, every person does not do the same for us.
Let our gatherings with family, and in community, be filled with peace and love and thankfulness for the blessings we have. May we always and all ways be blessings to each other. Amen.
Each year we share this meditation poem written by Twinkle in 2013.
May we find comfort in the warm embrace of the dark season.
The Dark Season
We are at the threshold of the Seasons,
the doorway to the Year,
when the Veil is thin,
and time passes amorphously.
We turn inward as the Darkness beckons us.
We welcome the warmth of the fire,
contemplating the mysteries of the Unseen.
We honor the soft ache in our hearts
for those we have lost:
And we rest.
For rest we must, to heal.
This is the cycle of death and rebirth;
release and renewal.
We cherish this time
as the lessons it offers
penetrate our knowing.
May we breathe in wisdom
and breathe out patience.
