On Abundance

In this time of Thanksgiving and the holidays we think of abundance with the abundant harvest; abundant family and abundant friends.

If we have this we are lucky for there are many other abundances

Abundance of thirst

Abundance of hunger

Abundance of sadness

of loneliness

Abundance of tears

of apathy

of madness

Abudance of money

of food

of friends

of respect

It's the positive part of abundance that we tend to think of. That we are a rich nation with rich resources.

But don't forget how hard this time of year can be for those with scarcity, with depression, with broken hearts.

Use your abundant spirit to help their broken spirits.

And make the gladness in your heart even more abundant.

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
