Who feels like their life is crazy?
I am writing this, trapped in my office at work. You see, I live in Nashville and it is snowing. We probably have two inches. But the streets are gridlocked and people are panicked, trying to get home.
Snow is not a common thing here.
After 20 minutes in the car and traveling less than a block, I came back to the office… a bit frustrated.
But, I decided to take these hours as a gift and work on some Bloom posts.
I logged in to Vimeo and watched today’s video: chapter four.
Ann’s sweet voice reminded me of the bubble.
Her words struck me to the core, “every moment is this bubble, this gift from God, and I need to enter into it and see the beauty of it.”
Every. single. moment.
Too often, bubbles in my life pop before I see their shimmer.
What about you?
Are you stuck today?
What bubbles have you missed?
In this chapter, Ann reminds us that in giving thanks, we get more time because we see each moment as it is, and the attentiveness slows time down.
I need that time to slow.
I want that time for God.
I want to not be so tired and stretch.
I want to live life as if it isn’t an emergency because it isn’t. It is a gift.
How are you deepening your awakening? Have you repeated gifts? How is your hunt?
Giving thanks, gives you time.
So, while cars are gridlocked outside, I am giving thanks.
Seed: Life is not an emergency.
Water: Being attentive slows time down. God has given me this one life. How will I live it, full of thanksgiving?
Grow: I am learning to be patient and thankful in all things.
What stood out for you in this chapter? Feel free to share the seed that you are growing as we go…
