How do you lead someone through a story without dropping bread crumbs to the obvious conclusion?
I was pondering this the other day when I crafted Thursdays’ post, The Path for Faith Barista. Every Thursday I post according to the topic, but sometimes we get so mired in seriousness that I have to approach the topic a different way. One Thursday, I posted a humorous story for the Thursday topic with a serious point in a post called Moses’ Android. We spend too much time on the cell phones and pay less attention to the people around us. We forget to be present. Being present is more powerful than any blog post we could ever write.
Today’s post is about being grateful. I wanted to tell a story to make a point, but then wondered how I could do it without someone drawing the obvious conclusion? I guess that’s why they call writing a craft. It’s not always easy.
Instead, I chose to write that post for another day and ask you: What are you most grateful for? I want you to think beyond the obvious and think of something hardly ever spoken of and less appreciated or overlooked. Please share it with us. Then, write a prayer about it with your comment. This is my way to be present with you and allow me to share in your life.
