living 'in' thanksgiving...

is very much the case . ! ? - ... * < > / / +

No, that's not a over-spaced expletive, it's the flow of any given day, moment, breath.  It's fleeting and changes that fast.  I've longed to 'empty the cup' for a while now but time, space, concise train of thought...everyday life seems to beget none of that.  But for the beauty, the joy, the living 'in' that life requires and seemingly demands - I would have it no other way.

With the holiday season rapidly approaching (encroaching at times), I feel a concerted pause is needed.  A simple recognition that thanksgiving, celebration of our Savior's birth into this world and the glory that longs to be found in the rigamarole of every day - yes, that is worthy of pause, praise and certainly thanksgiving.

There's a quote that greets me every day from the window in my bathroom...

Breathe...When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love  -Marcus Aurelius

There is indeed much 'precious privilege' in my every day.  Choosing to meet that with an intention of thanksgiving through what i say, what i think, how i live, where my heart lies - therein lies the divine sweet spot of the living 'in'.  It's not meant to be saved for a season, a month, a celebrated day...it's certainly meant to circumvent all of that and live within the bounds of all seasons, all days - each & every sacred moment.

living...

'in'...
