Thanks again to Curt for sharing an image for this weekend’s gratitude. Either today or tomorrow, make a space where you can try some Visio Divina, Latin for “divine seeing,” a method for praying with images or other media (Tim Mooney). Maybe enjoy a warm cup of tea or hot chocolate as you take time to enjoy some quiet. It might surprise you what thoughts bubble up, what new thanks become visible.
Visio Divina Questions
- What do you notice at first about this picture? What jumps out at you?
- Does it remind you of anything in particular? Does it make you think ahead to something?
- How might this image be related to God’s continuing work in your life?
Spend as much or as little time with this image as is helpful, and (if you like) you can jot some notes about your time in your packet or notebook.
