Gratitude Stories ~ Real Conversations
Greetings Dear Reader,
One of the changes that has occurred is the timbre of my daily conversations. Before I began this transitional part of the journey very few of those with whom I interacted daily were keen on real conversations about the Father and his daily conversation with us. The few who were willing to be a part of that conversation are still there even though they are distant.
In my current environment the things of God are central to conversation, daily practice, and life. Just yesterday I saw the power of the Divine in a frail woman who chose to spontaneously pray for me, my children, and our needs. This is not the first time she has been significant in this part of my journey. She prayed and I wept over her words that reminded me so clearly of the love and care that the Father has for me in all things.
There are those who are distant with whom I can have real conversations and at least two of them, Jeff and Alex have stayed true in their friendship and support. My father wounds have made real conversations with adult men difficult all my life. These to friends transcend that barrier because of their kindness and love for me. Part of my gratitude story is their friendship
I am becoming acquainted with men who also are transcending that barrier. It is fearful for me to confront the destruction of a wall which has its foundation in my earliest life experiences; some beyond memory. Still, I am grateful for those who hold these loving real conversations with me based on faith and following Christ.
We are supposed to be the people in whom others are offered the opportunity to see the love of the Father, the precious fellow traveler we have in Jesus, and the power we have from the Holy Spirit. The real conversations with these human fellow travelers are showing me the faces of the Divine in ways they do not even realize.
It is in the love and care of these fellow travelers that I find my heart sustained and grateful for the love of a God who is literally singing out an entire universe just to make sure we see that love. Your company in these daily writings is also part of that blessing Dear Reader. You are part of my fellow traveler gratitude story.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
