Thankfulness

Thankfulness –

The art of slowing down
The discipline of capturing the swirling tides of
Have To’s and “Shoulds” and riding herd on them
with smiles and laughter
and

flintlike

determination

holding-hands

Thankfulness –

The power of selfless control
and the victory of taking Time by slippery grasp to

notice it

calm it

and push it back

for some much needed Do Overs

Thankfulness –

The inner strength to tackle the ticking of the clock

to be willing to

Stop

Drop to our knees

And

see the rock

Roll away

 wrapped in the Truth of an empty grave … and Thank full nests

Five Minute Fridays, Thought-provoking Thursdays, Just Write, Playdates with God,
