2/15/05 Our Father, as we pause again mid-day to give thanks for this hour – for nourishment received – for fellowship with each other – for a time away from the strain and tension remind us that your Grace is everlasting – that change is possible and that where we are wrong, make us receptive to change. Amen
Remembering all of this is nourishment to make a change in course. Not sure a croissant breakfast scores high on the nourishment charts. But the artistry of these baked goods gives me pause. I appreciate all the aspects of their magnificence.
If I am able to wax way too poetic over high calorie croissants, I can savor each and every layer of Grace provided to me. The fragrance of life blown in through a stank cabin of despairing hopes, is far more magnificent and overwhelming than my day old marked down croissants from a grocery store warmed up in the oven…therein is the nourishment.
