Greer not afraid to love

What of me am I #afraid to expose? #ParkerPalmer #LoveWins 1Jn4:18

Holy Trinity, center me now that I may notice Your creative intention, nest in the broad, safe space of Your presence, and intentionally nurture another with the same.

What word or phrase do I notice on which I may center:

Psalm 95:1-5, 8 Come, let us sing to the Lord! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come to the Lord with thanksgiving. Let us sing psalms of praise to the Lord. For the Lord is a great God, a great King above all gods. The Lords hands hold the depths of the earth and the mightiest mountains. The sea belongs to the Lord, made by the Lord. The Lords hands formed the dry land, too. The Lord says, “Don’t harden your hearts as Israel did at Meribah, as they did at Massah in the wilderness.” [NLT]

Line the nest of God’s presence with this prayer for _______ and myself:

Lord God, thank you, for sharing with me all of your creation. Thank you, for your attention that rests specifically on ________. Help me to make the room to be filled with gratitude. Open the eyes and ears and heart of ________ and me to notice with awe and wonder at all you have made and are making. Help ________ infect someone else with that same awe and wonder today. Amen.

How will I intentionally nurture ________ today:
