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 #23 -- Thank God For YOU!!


Thank you, dear Lord, for writing my life…
and signing Your name on my heart.

--Michele Morgan

This week’s Exprayeriment is all about being thankful for YOU…for God’s signature on your life and your unique way of being in the world.

Make a list of the fun, quirky, signature things that make you, well, you.

Like your passion for baking bread every Saturday morning; how you insist on drinking your favorite tea from a Mason jar, even when you’re walking around the mall; that you’ve had a totally different funny voice for “conversing” with every pet you’ve ever had; that you never get off the phone with someone you care about without saying “I love you”...and you mean it. 

Pay attention all week to those expressions and qualities as they appear; at the end of the week, light a candle, read the list out loud, followed by the prayer above, then throw confetti, blow bubbles, and celebrate you!

May God bless you and your loved ones with every wonderful thing this holiday season.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
