Today's post is co-written by the famous Goose, from the Gospel of Goose blog (which if you haven't, check it out and prepare to see more beautiful today) and us. We dabble a little of both of ourselves through this post and it's special.
Goose writes (he's such a talented dog): On Ash Wednesday (2/22) MOM was preparing for the worship service. Feeling inspired in a beautiful way she prepared the altar with the ashes from the previous Palm Sunday. I had her take a picture of it to send to you.
It's "See Beautiful" in ashes. So, after all was said and done MOM looked at the pictures and noticed that she had left out an "I" in beautiful. Hehhee! I told her it was beautiful just as it was. I tried to bestow some Goose wisdom on her. Basically I said, "Sure it is missing an "I". But what does that really mean? In this beautiful community of faith we are a part of there are no "I's" (except the great I AM.) We are a community of we's and us, and we work together not alone. So MOM just sent the picture the way it is. It's beautiful."
When we received this picture it gave us chills for two reasons: (1) because it's so beautiful and thoughtful; and (2) because we did something similar. We're not sure if you noticed, but the first picture we posted of "See Beautiful" in the rocks was missing a letter. See here:
It's not about "I" and it's not about "U" - It's all about We. Us. Community. It's all about humanity empowering each other. It's all about making this world a better place for all. No "U", no "I", but we and us.
And that, our friends, is beautiful, any way you spell it!
