The community we nurture

The community we nurture May 22, 2011

It’s the way we frame our treasures here

and there

The hospitality we offer

The  hands extended when we falter

The doors we push through

The hard places we scale

It’s the community we nurture

When we cheer each other on

Or, when necessary, pull each other upward

It’s the laughter

And the light that surrounds us

It’s being able to share our highest highs

And the dark hidden places, that

equips us to see beyond the bend

to the Glory before us

Above us

Indeed, all around us

Sing like no one’s listening, love like you’ve never been hurt, dance like nobody’s watching and live like it’s heaven on earth — Mark Twain

    Karen, THANK YOU! You touched my heaart with the words and the pictures. I went to the Patheos site: a new one for me. One worth further browsing…. who is it who put it up and backs it?
    Sending much love your way.

    Awsome pictures Karin….what a beautifull planet we live on…

  • Beauty-full indeed.

    I rather fancy the “hippies use backdoor” image. Does that count for “closet hippies” too? Golly, I might just pee my pants trying to figure it out.

    (I want to comment on your Camping Prohibited post too… thank you for reminding us that the greatest of these is love. You’ve got quite a conversation going on over there.)
