We pulled around the corner of the Civic Center circle and felt it…
Adonai Elohim had went ahead of us. His presence was inescapable.
We made burritos to hand out to the “homeless”. I say it with ” ” because none of those we met today were homeless, they were at home. We didn’t come out of pity, or to ‘give’ to unfortunates; rather we gave out of the only response of having received so much to be thankful for…God’s filling us with Him!!
Lives touched at the end of burritos exchanged with hearts full of level love. No one was below, no one was above, we all stood on the same ground flowing with the same Sun Light, the same breeze blown by the Author of all. We were fed by their smiles, banter and total at ease-ment inside their own full cups. Filled by the same Light. Others had come to do the same, free hair cuts, coats, scarves, mittens, shoes, attire, and food/drink. No one had to “prove” they were “homeless”; the requirement was…needs. Empty stomachs, holey garments, and the willingness to give by receiving. A band played music. Yeshua (Jesus) fed thousands…with the bread given to a few. His presence smiled so wide one could not doubt that another Kingdom had stepped through a hidden door and there we were in its midst. The only exchange was love, it born of gratitude to the King of this Kingdom.
Honestly (without minimizing our thankfulness for family and the many turkey dinners and love exchanged by tradition) this was the most AWESOME Thanksgiving ever! What was, was simply accepted, what was not…was not considered lost…just taken care of by the Father as promised.
The exchange of freedom unencumbered by dwellings, things, things, things… moved into our hearts as home. Perspective is everything. All, all things gain a higher perspective with a heart full of gratitude to the Giver of Life. Glory, glory glory to God!! Your Kingdom come, Your Will be done, on earth as it is in heaven…
Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤
