Something happening tomorrow I am thankful for

happening tomorrow

Heading to the theater.

Traci Smith, author of Faithful Families: Creating Sacred Moments at Home has provided a gift of the November 2018 Gratitude Every Day calendar. I am using it as an opportuity to revisit photos and post them as they speak to gratitude.

Earthen vessels

photo (63)A rainbow of people,
speaking many languages,
with a multitude of accents,
filled the car on the
uptown 1 Train
as we returned after viewing
All the Way.
And I pondered how far we have come;
and I grieved how far we have to go:
and I remembered how the people portrayed in the show,
Johnson, King, Carmichael, Humphrey:
flawed, earthen vessels all,
helped bend, however slightly,
the long arc of the moral universe towards justice;
and I gave thanks,
and I wondered how I might join that effort.
