There are skies of blue, and grass of green…

This coming week brings a new experience to our lives.  Our youngest son, Andrew, will come to the end of a long journey, a true journey of the soul.  He will both graduate from theology school, and then become ordained as a Unitarian Universalist minister.  He will come here to our farm the week before the ordination to retreat before he takes on this new sacred role within humanity.

We wish him the very best, as always, and hope he finds peace here, soul quiet here, and remembers all of the awe and wonder his journey has given him.

This is the chalice I made for Andrew’s ordination.  The chalice is a symbol of  Unitarian Universalism.  This is made of alabaster to hold within it the light of faith, as well as the fire of compassion.

We are all proud of you, Andrew.  Thanks for being in our world!  Thanks for being human!

Parting Thought

Breathe. Relax. Take a moment just to be.
