musings from linda 9/9/22
One of the most wonderful words in ANY language is — WELCOME!!! Just hearing the word conjures up images of warm smiles, open arms and being joyfully INCLUDED. All of us have known the opposite feeling — that sad emptiness in the pit of your stomach when you are being purposefully left out…
That’s why it’s so WONDERFUL that Heather says every single Sunday - -
“Whoever you are,
and wherever you are on life’s journey,
YOU ARE WELCOME HERE!”
It doesn’t matter what we look like, how old we are, how much money we have, how smart we are or what mistakes we have made in our lives — We are WELCOME and we are WANTED!
A dear friend gifted me a little book called HEARTICULATIONS — on Love, Friendship and Healing — by Jeff Brown. Each page has a wise and illuminating thought to ponder. Some are several paragraphs, others are quite short, as is this one:
“We are not just here together to keep each other company.
We are here together, to show each other God.
The portal is each other.“
