Food for Thought

Recently I came across this quote by George Eliot. It resonates with me on a number of different levels.

It describes the relationship we can have with our
heavenly Father
or a relationship with a treasured friend.

It describes the relationship that Jesus followers
should ultimately have with each other as a result
of the "breath of kindness" God extends to them.

Lord, let it be so. Amen.

Oh the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person; having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but to pour them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then, with the breath of kindness, blow the rest away.

George Eliot
