Because eight year olds love things that are slightly complicated but not really, and because 8 year olds are some of the most imaginative people I know, we'll be doing a two-part carnival this week!
- What's your birthday tradition?
- If you were blowing out the RevGal birthday candles, what would you wish for us? What's your dream for RevGalBlogPals?
The only time I have ever willingly stood on a chair was on my birthday. For someone who has always had a fear of falling, this would not have been my first choice for an established tradition. And yet, I have this clear memory of the feelings it created within me. A sense of delight combined with a certain shyness and a feeling of danger blended with joy. I remember wondering what I should do with my hands.
My wish for the RevGalBlogPals is that we would stand on our chair. This group includes brilliant minds, published authors, funny, caring, compassionate pastors and lay people. The generosity of spirit. The transparency within relationships. I wonder if we always claim all that we are. Are our dreams big enough? It's time to stand on our chair.
