Food 4 Thought – November

Our November Food 4 Thought hosts, Jane Fiore and Ilsa Koerper have chosen “Resilience” as their theme for this month! Here is their first meditation and selections for your reflection. Please feel free to add your thoughts in the comments section below.

Food for thought: November: A meditation
According to Miriam Webster Resiliency is an ability to recover from or adjust easily to adversity or change. We have had to adjust to so much in the last year and we continue to do so. This month we would like to offer some inspiration, encouragement and support to our community to help us to recover, adjust. bounce back, to continue!
We offer the brilliant words of Maya Angelou: Excerpts from her poem “ CONTINUE’
My wish for you is that you Continue.
Continue to be who and how you are. To astonish a mean world with your acts of kindness.
Continue to remind people that each is as good as the other, that no one is above or beneath you
Continue to let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer, and let faith be the bridge you build to overcome evil and welcome good
Continue to dare to love deeply and risk everything for the good thing
And by doing so you and your work will be able to continue Eternally

And also, this verse from Scripture: Philippians 4:19

“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in
Christ Jesus ..“

    Thank you for this. That poem is a blessing especially in hard times. Resilience is something I used to think I had. This past year feels like I get along on sheer grit. I hold on for any glimpse of light. The thought that first and foremost I am a child of God comforts me. My destination in this pilgrim life is to be with God. Lord how long…
