Offerings

Such gratifying work, offering making. It is so beautiful, to take time in a day to offer to the Gods. Or God. To bring the hopes for the day (or the events of the day, depending on where the sun is when you make yours) and lift them up to the Universe, Vishnu. Jesus. The goodbyes and the hellos, the joys and the tears, play and rest, luck and misfortune- to present it all in your own careful handiwork and then to give it, wrapped in beauty (because nothing is perfect, but all beautiful) in gift and praise to a living God.

Give it. Give it back. Give it up. Offer. Pray. Love. Thank. Forgive.
