Beautiful Disaster

What if we marinated our woes in love, patience, and empathy?

Baked it at 370 degrees of vulnerability and accountability?

What a beautiful disaster when fear is no longer the main course or ingredient of our recipes.

Back in early February Ama Vee wrote this on instagram:

“Personal thought of the day. I’ve been fortunate to engage in many conversations around vulnerability. What echoes the most out of these conversations is: FEAR. Fear is the buffer between what we can and cannot create. A natural defence mechanism. Fear is what stands between the knowing and unknown. Once we get over it, we realize that things around us are still moving- so wtf were we standing still in the first place?!
Vulnerability is that landing pad-yes it’s a safe space! Get acquainted. Find your balance. Be brave. Steady pace🍿🍍
What’s your recipe?”

What is your recipe? It’s a good question, and the pandemic has been a good time to trade recipes for all sorts of good eating.

What makes your life work?

What are the best ingredients of your life?

What ingredients will you stop using?

About R.H. (Rusty) Foerger

As I enter the third third of life, I am becoming aware of the role of elders today “to enlarge spiritual vision, being devoted to prayer, living in the face of death, as a living curriculum of the Christian life” (Dr. James M. Houston). I am a life long and life wide learner who seeks to: *decipher the enigma of our worth *rescue from the agony of prayerlessness *integrate spiritual friendship.
