“If the only prayer you ever say in your lifeis thank you, it will be enough.” – Meister Eckhart
I am human,
living each day,
sunrise to sunset
in a linear progression,
looking back to remember the past
living in the moment,
thinking of tomorrow
as the future.
With pride and in awe,
we watch our offspring stand on the ceiling
of our experience and all we have taught them.
My ceiling is in fact my children’s floor.
It is what they stand on as they begin their lives.
And so the circle of life continues but not like a pointless circle; it is more like a spiral which rises ever closer to the light, to a fullness of healing IF we let go and let God control time.
It is interesting that when my kids gather at celebrations, they dance in a circle, facing each other. As I watch, this circle of dance it seems symbolic to me, reminding me of the circle of life. Especially when they dance, my adult children’s joy is contagious. Once again, I am filled with humble thanksgiving for what the Lord has done in our family.Every once in a while, one will turn and gesture to other people to come and join them and they do because the circle is inclusive.
Psalm 127:3-5 ESV
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame
