Giving ourselves fully to each moment and the people we share it with is a precious gift that we can offer to ourselves and others. Whether at work, home, or in our communities, being present and authentic allows us to connect with others on a deeper level. It cultivates empathy, understanding, and effective communication, fostering trust and building stronger relationships. When we are fully present, we can savor every moment and appreciate the people in our lives more fully. So let us embrace vulnerability and let our true selves shine, for our full presence and authenticity is a gift that keeps on giving.

With that, I offer you one of my most cherished moments of pure vulnerability and meaningful connection with new friends at the Bay in Lewes, Delaware…

Pulsing Possibility of Enduring Love
By Misti Burmeister

The setting was magical
Crisp views of the bay
Every angle captured…
God’s grace.

Here, have this…
Like a scene out of a movie
Connected and caring
Interesting and interested

Creating the capstone of our conversation
An undeniable godliness
Weaving our energies
Into One

An outpouring of love
And bountiful
Calling forth unshakable joy

The kind that makes
Each moment precious
Elastic and luring
Losing time was easy in their presence

Positioned so perfectly
With full view of this…
Colorful cloth,
Weaving its way into the mosaic

Masterfully crafted
Inviting us into the possibilities
Inherent in allowing
Love to flow

Free to be who we are
Amicable in the
Artful expression of…
Our most authentic self

Simply alive
Breathing in the
Beauty like
Starbursts from every corner

Beyond the horizon
Beneath appearance
Appreciating this…
Pulsing possibility of enduring love.

Here’s to your greatness,
