Todd, this is my first time listening through an entire Lectio post. This one is excellent! Imagine God’s eagerness for our eternal joy! Love it! Creating people of pure delight. I’m thinking about all our church’s elderly (we have a lot – it’s an “old” church). 100th healthy birthday will be commonplace. Thx a lot for these beautiful thoughts from Eugene Peterson.
It’s a delight to read your note. Thank you for taking a moment to share it! I hope you will come along for more of the ride.

I like your pic of the constellation as a way to journal during Lectio. Great idea. I’m thinking about all the elderly in our church (it’s an old Presbyterian church). 100th healthy birthdays commonplace. Thx for this beautiful meditation.
Thank you! Deepest peace with you today…
My word was abundance- the image I had was of a giant tree with many branches and also a person/tree planted with many deep roots.
A comment on the background noise- the gentle sound of the singing bird is both uplifting and soothing. Thanks for that! Especially grateful to hear that bird while I sit in my meditation wrapped in two blankets looking out at a cold snowy November day. I could very nearly feel myself enjoying a warm summer afternoon instead.
Thank you for this, Heather! I recorded that bird singing her sweet song at the foot of Mount Shavano, just outside of Salida, Colorado, just before sunrise last April. I too find that she brings a gift to me every time I hear her. I also enjoy the image of your snowy yet warm peace as you meditate! With Gratitude, Todd
