Enneagram types explained via tree climbing bears. It really is spot on. @ElizabethM
On the fourth day he created the grain in the fields.
On the fifth day he created the sheep in the pastures and wood of the forrest.
On the sixth day he realised there were still no bricks and offerred 2 grain to trade.
Realising there was noone to trade with he created Man, who produced bricks and took the deal for grain.
On the seventh day finally God was able to build a settlement.
Then he surveyed all he had made and thought I should go for the longest road.
Richard Rohr on Feeling and Suffering
I was re-reading a chapter from Richard Rohr's Everything Belongs, and this quote really hit me hard:
"So much is happening on earth that cannot be fixed or explained, but it can be felt and suffered. I think a Christian is one who, along with Jesus, agrees to feel, to suffer the pain of the world."
I tend to react with outrage and anger, when in reality my first response should be to feel the pain, suffer alongside those who are suffering, and weep.
Chapter 2 Love & Parenting
As a child, I always hated how my mom told me everything was theirs and I didn’t have any rights to any of my stuff. I grew up with justice being really important to me but I hadn’t connected the two before.
So now I’m considering what words I’m saying to my kids and how. What messages am I really sending? And what does loves/nurturing/kindness really look like during a toddler meltdown in the grocery store?!?
Anyone else getting the urge to nominate Richard Rohr as patron saint of #TheLiturgists?
You guys!! I think I won the parent lottery. Last night I got a text from my mom saying that they started watching the state of the union, but then turned it off to watch Harry Potter instead. ⚡
How are these the same people who bought me a purity ring, wouldn't let me play Zelda (because that's how you get possessed by demons) and had a vhs boxed set about how rock and roll was the work of Satan!?! I don't know the answer, but I'll take this version any day!! ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
Wife, mother, trivia nerd. Always happy to speak at length about the Silmarillion.
