A Bubble of Blessing

bonney-lake-010-3

Good Day, God!

I’m finding that Blessing people is becoming easier and easier. Today, while I was blessing a friend I had a fun thought which expanded a bit on the whole idea of Blessing. Into my mind came an image of the Bubble that Glinda the Good Witch traveled in during the movie, the Wizard of Oz.

A Bubble of Blessings! Perfect! Putting a friend I was blessing inside a Blessing Bubble seemed to be an absolutely wonderful way to focus blessings on that friend.

I immediately found my mind creating a Bubble for first this friend and then that friend. And then near the end of my Centering Prayer Time I put myself into a Bubble of Blessing. Wow! I loved it! I felt protected, safe, loved and as if I were being cleaned up . . . atom by atom.

I suppose God, that this is bubble idea is what comes of being a person who loves images.

But, let’s consider the possibilities here. Saint Paul in Romans 12:1-2 commands us to offer ourselves as living sacrifices — I alway pictured myself  climbing up on a sacrificial stone altar — so we might be transformed by the renewing of our mind. Compare a stone altar with a beautiful rainbow colored Bubble. What a change of venue!

Of course, God, I want to be transformed. I want to be cleaned up, rewired, rerouted and repurposed. But, I’d rather You did that inside a Bubble of Blessing than on a stone altar.
