I know we usually share our thankfuls on Thursday, and Kitties Blue and I will be doing that again this week. I feel extra thankful this week for many reasons and so decided to share a Spark with that sentiment as well. Sawyer, with Christmas gifts from his girlfriend Noelle, is the backdrop for the Spark.
I was unfamiliar with Meister Eckhart and suspect you may not know who he is.
Eckhart von Hochheim (c. 1260 – c. 1328), was commonly known as Meister Eckhart or Eckehart. He was a German theologian, philosopher and mystic and well known for his work with pious lay groups such as the Friends of God. Eckhart came into prominence at a time of increased tensions between monastic orders, diocesan clergy, the Franciscan Order, and Eckhart’s Dominican Order of Preachers. In later life, he was accused of heresy and brought up before the local Franciscan-led Inquisition. Tried as a heretic by Pope John XXII, he seems to have died before his verdict was received.
Sparks is the creation of Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend. When she began Sparks Annie stated, “I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world.”
