another week of blessing, Thursday

Many of us tell the great stories of the Bible
with relish.
We tell the great stories of our faith tradition
with gusto.
We celebrate character and plot—
hope, surprise, transformation,
wonder, joy, and love.

And I do hope you love those stories.

I also hope you know
your story takes its place
with the same wonder of character
depth of plot—
justification of hope,
potential for surprise,
possibility of transformation,
revelation of wonder,
celebration of joy,
and manifestations of love.

Thank you for the ways your story is one of the great stories.
May you know and celebrate it as such.
