I can’t believe that I have been writing these alphabet focused gratitude reflections long enough to come to “V”…what the heck does one say about V?….
Vestments – oh, I do love some of the beautiful attire we clergy get to wear. Back at my former parish we had a gorgeous white silk chasuble…really beautiful. And in some churches really old vestments, well made, hand embroidered. Amazing how years ago these holy men would wear such flowery finery. And, now, I get to wear them. Although generally speaking I like to be simple….an alb and a stole. But then I am considering some new albs from womenspirit.
I’d like to say Vermont or Virginia – but I’ve never been to Vermont and the one time I drove through Virginia was in the dark of night….but I hear they are beautiful states – so I’m grateful they exist, even when I haven’t seen them. Is it obvious that I am struggling here?
Voice: oh yes, I am grateful for voice – that I can, that we can, speak. For voice that speaks authentically. For voice that speaks love. For voice that speaks truth. For voices of justice.
Vanilla: ice cream and latte’s.
Vinegar: balsamic, raspberry, that kind…on baby greens with goat cheese….
