Happy Thanksgiving

20190914_121302

In our heart of hearts we long for home,

and a sense of belonging

that speaks to us.

Over the next few days, millions of people around my part of the world, will be traveling with the longing for home within them.

The gathering together, the drawing in.

Life is not always about the battles, and scars. It’s also very much about the healing, the joy, the forgiveness, the love and yes belonging.

My wife and I have much to be thankful for.

From our home to yours,

Happy Thanksgiving!

Around the Table

As we sit around the table, may we be thankful for the food we eat

realizing there are those that have none, may we lift up a prayer

and ask God to help us make a difference in our world

and even dismantle, some of the hate.

May we love our neighbor

as ourselves.
