The other day I grabbed this free paper from our yard and headed for the recycling bin. But then I took a look at the photo.
What was this about a virtual Thanksgiving service? What is the Fort Bend Interfaith Community? Usually I'd be too busy to ponder this. I've got time this year.
The Day Before Thanksgiving
I've been curious about FBIC. We live in a county that is one of the most diverse in the country. I wanted to see how all these religious groups unite.
I found the service on YouTube. I started it up on the TV, and headed for the kitchen, so I could do some multi-tasking.
Wow! So many faiths coming together for this program. "Signs of Hope". If ever we needed some hope, it's now.
Watching and Working
I was going to make a pie, while I watched and listened. But some old family silver caught my eye. What a silly chore, especially since we won't exactly be using silver tomorrow. But I used to love helping my mom polish silver before Thanksgiving.
There was something calming, about listening while I rubbed and buffed away at those dingy antiques.
It was actually pretty wonderful listening to the voices and the music of so many different spiritual leaders from our area.
These are just a few of the faces I saw on the program. All so different in dress and approach and sound. But all had the same messages of faith and hope. It was a nice treat on the day before Thanksgiving.
I'll make pie tomorrow.
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me. I ranted for a year, until I got my vaccine in March 2021.
Coronary Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was Don who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
