Life to the full

I’ve been reflecting on John 10:10 and 20:31…

‘Life to the full’

is about being fully

who you are

Being whole

Wholly giving of yourself

in love.

 

Life to the full

Is rejoicing in a baby’s chuckle

 

Life to the full

Is the caring touch toward someone in need.

 

Life to the full

Is awe at God’s creation.

 

Life to the full

Is valuing the wisdom of lived experience

 

Life to the full

Is sating your body’s fire

With reciprocal loving

 

Each such moment

Is sacramental,

A sign of God’s presence,

Part of the fullness

Of life

Of love

Of communion

Toward which each moment of our lives calls us.

  1. Beautiful thoughts to finish the week, especially a week dominated by the diminishment of life at home and abroad. Thanks Patrick.

  2. Sounds like you mate – being whole – wholly giving yourself to what ever you are doing.

    Have great trip!
