She must learn again to speak
starting with I
starting with We
starting as the infant does
with her own true hunger
and pleasure
and rage.

Exprayeriment #24 -- Thank God for YOU, Part II


As we mentioned in last week's post, this will be our final Exprayeriment for 2012.  We're putting the finishing touches on the virtual Advent calendar and can't WAIT to show you what's behind each door!

Before we sign off from the EHQ for the year, we want to say a HUGE "Thank you!"  Many of you journeyed with us through last year's Advent calendar and have been with us through our official launch, countless blog posts, and six months worth of Exprayeriments.  We appreciate all of you -- your presence, your playfulness, your insights and perspective.

Spend some time with this amazing quote and join us in the continued celebration of the gift of YOU: 

In our faithful listening to God's Word, we often neglect his first word to us -- the gift of ourselves to ourselves: our existence, our temperament, our personal history, our uniqueness, our flaws and foibles, our identity. Our very existence is one of the never-to-be-repeated ways God has chosen to express himself in space and time. Because we are made in God's image and likeness, you and I are yet another promise that he has made to the universe that he will continue to love it and care for it.

- Brennan Manning, Ruthless Trust

Best and brightest holiday blessings!
With love,
Michele and Alizabeth
