Advent Word 14 - Honey

Posted by Rob McClellan on

For a people reared on tales of a land of milk and honey, there is a Mayan blessing to add to the recipe:  Long life, honey in the heart, thirteen blessings...

The landscape of the heart is movable.

And, the heart is born of place.

 If you’ve ever made honey,

          -Which is to say you’ve taken the bees’ gift across the last 100 feet of the marathon-

You’ll know that sweetness comes from taking what’s in the world, mixing it with something from inside, and giving it back.

Making honey is not a hobby.

It is our vocation. 

Look around.

          Flowers are found in the most surprising of places.

          And all hearts can produce.
