This reflection is from Chaplain Silvana. She writes about gifts and invites our consideration. As you read, imagine you are in a favorite sanctuary or chapel.
I have been meditating on these words of wisdom by Macrina Wiederkehr:
“Deep within your soul there is a knowing place
a sanctuary where gifts are nurtured.
Enter that sacred space;
Spend time there tending your gifts.
There in the chapel of your heart
you will become a gift to be given.”
As the pandemic drags on, my anxiety about how the future might look sometimes gets the better of me. I want to stay focused on today because it is more manageable.
So today I want to reflect on these two questions:
- What gifts can I offer to others? -and-
- What gifts am I willing to receive?
May your giving and receiving be blessed!
