The Center of All

TLS 365 Experience #289
December 14, 2017

It’s in the simple moments with grandchildren that a family becomes extended and enriched. Mine had visited yesterday and I set up bowls of dried peas and pastas for them to create with as we made cookies in the kitchen. I spilled some flour on the counter and before I had a chance to wipe it up, the youngest was drawing stars in it.

I joined her and we made a variety of shapes, becoming more creative as we continued. It was in this play that my grandchild learned of the labyrinth, as the drawing of this symbol, to me seemed inevitable in creating and symbolizing. What was wonderful was in the application this young child brought to it. She commented on the paths and how they were ancestral. She noted that the outer paths were the great great grandparents and how each path led generationally to the center where she was.

My mind takes wondrous leaps in the wisdom of children, and isn’t that just like a child to know they are the center of all things in a family?

Giving Walks

TLS 365 Experience #279
December 4, 2017

This is the time of year where giving is part of the season. There are many without in this season and a good time to produce a labyrinth walk around the giving to those with less. Over the years our community group has produced labyrinth walks of food to fill the donation pantry for the homeless, clothing to bring in anything from socks to sweaters, outerwear walks such as overcoats, gloves, hats and scarves too. We have brought in blankets and toiletry items by putting out bags that can be filled. We are considering a cookie walk to donate to a local ministry too.

As people come to walk, they leave their items on the labyrinth and we walk with the items in mind offering prayer, blessings and song. All the good will of bringing and preparing the goods with love and compassion make the giving even more special.
