Welcome Table Contemplation
Chairs scattered here and there waiting for friends to arrive
are you a welcomed friend at your own table?
No matter who shows up
show up for yourself,
this I tell myself.
Roses grow where they are planted
if you treat them right.
Seek the soil of kindness and joy
for your self and all those around you.
Bless all who enter and give thanks.
(Is that Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks singing lead?)
According to the choir director of Jonah and the Wailers (seem below) the old Gospels song The Welcome Table originally was a Jewish idea. Good idea for this year’s, once in a life time hybrid holiday of Thanksgiving and Chanukah.
Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving and Chanukah To You!
