A Reflection on Abundance - by Mary Quinby (parishioner)
Every Sunday I take my place in the pew. I know I will find the spiritual stimulation and the inner peace I seek. I will also be given moments of sheer delight and humor.
As the music begins there are sounds of thundering elephants running down the aisles. As you watch the procession, you can't believe that all the noise is made by Bodkins less than three feet tall. They pick up maracas and tambourines and sway and dance, each to his or her own tempo. They watch each other; their eyes shine with marvel. Happiness exudes from each of them. The faces of all the adults have broken into smiles. It is pure joy to behold.
As the Eucharist begins, you see shoes that light up - shoes that sparkle - favorite toys clutched, and bows and ruffles moving toward the altar. They are happy to be with their parents and their church family. They smile and hold out their little hands to receive the Holy Bread.
When a new baby arrives for its first visit, the "Grandmothers" swoop in to cuddle each one. The touching hand is sown.
We stand with these children at their Baptism and promise to be there for them. How grateful we are for the blessings of these little ones and for a church that welcomes them to worship with us.
Wonderful things do come in small packages.
Thank you God for our children!
