For Friday 13th December, written Saturday 14th – short and sweet, I expect…

gift-box-1140205-mYesterday, as we were making Nancy’s post live on @bigbible with “an image of Christmas gifts as a sign of God’s generosity and the human capacity to reflect that in sharing with others.” Heading to Ron Glusenkamp’s thoughts for this day in Advent, we see a call to give a gift of ourselves “to give of the heart and from the heart”, making a difference to how we live our lives…

Brian Draper had a beautiful experience watching leaves gently drop from trees, and has this thought to share:

And trust that if we stop clinging for dear life to the former things, then we make room for what God is waiting to place in our open, out-stretched hands. A gift of true worth.

Returning back to Maggi Dawn’s thoughts we remember that when Elijah was burnt out, God gifted him food, drink and sleep .. and encouraged him to make the space to hear the still, small voice of God. Maybe he’s doing that to me too, as despite making it out to karate this afternoon, I fell asleep for most of the afternoon, and haven’t done any of the things I meant to do… more sleep required before deciding how to catch up…
