Lenten affirmation, day 20

today, I got to use a lot of my gifts. I moderated conversations, i helped make decisions, I talked friends through hard choices, I helped people to think theologically. It was a good day. I felt alive. I am good at things.

I am thankful for extravagant hospitality, great food in a beautiful space. I am thankful for the ways my Unco community has held me over the years and I’m thankful that I can give something back. I’m thankful that my younger sister loves me. I’m thankful for structure being created even when it feels totally unnatural.
