What I take with me

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                     Packing for the journey, leaving much behind, what shall I take with me?

I take mindfulness, so that wherever I am I may actually be there.

I take gratitude, by which everything, everything is a gift.

I take trust. How much I can sow, knowing the seeds will sprout!

I take freedom, not from accountability, but to live by my choices.

I take love, my connection with all, my only true power.

I take wonder. There is always more. It is all mystery, all grace.

I take courage for all of life's yieldings and steadfastness.

I take gentleness and kindness, a way of being a blessing that cannot be taken away.

I take an open heart, open hands, open eyes. All else I leave on the curb.

Find me on the road, and find The One —I do not go on my own—

by whom I myself am taken.

                    Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
