Away from home this year, I will be a guest at another family's holiday table. I have been asked to come with no dessert in hand because they have so much already. So I have been thinking about what I have to contribute to the festivities.
I have decided to bring some things from my garden.
One of my favorite hymns begins with the thought, "A grateful heart a garden is, where there is always room for every lovely Godlike grace to come to perfect bloom." (Christian Science Hymnal, 3)
No one is empty-handed on Thanksgiving Day. I am grateful to be included. And this invitation to dinner gives me the opportunity to search my spiritual garden for all the best flowers - the most beautiful qualities of divine Love - that I can share.
What's in your garden? What is a grateful heart cultivating in you? What are you bringing to your Thanksgiving celebrations? Please let us know in the comments below. Your sharing may help someone else discover the lovely things blooming in their own garden.
