Tending The Fire // Share The Brew With Katie Reid — 10 Comments

  1. Thank you for this warm reminder to tend the fire within us. It’s the same with our marriages. Gotta keep tending that fire.

    I remember the years of tending a wood stove. It was our only source of heat. I remember being so hot you couldn’t hardly stay in the room the stove was in when we were getting it stoked for the night.

    Have a blessings weekend.

  2. What lovely words you shared here—amen Katie! We must be careful not to let our spiritual needs become more concerned with physical and worldly needs, and only rely and follow God half way. With all of our hearts we have to make sure that no relationship, selfish interest, worldly possession, or profession falls from the desire to give God all the glory. ♥

    Thanks for sharing; have a weekend full of joy!! ♥

  3. Wow, what a beautiful story, Katie. For Lent I’m on a journey to let what’s real sink deep. To stop striving for the fake. I want what’s real and ready to grasp who I am and let go of the masks that I’ve kept on. It’s a strategic move to control what others think of me and God’s saying it’s time. It’s time to put the masks away for good. (Deep breath) I’m ready.

  4. What a beautiful post. We live in Nebraska and have a wood burning stove that gives off heat that can warm you all the way through. I absolutely love starting and tending that fire. There’s something very primitive and instinctually satisfying about it. And many times I’ve thought about how it relates to our faith. But I’d never thought about how we carry the wood (the cross) and lay it down in front of the flame of the Holy Spirit — of Jesus. That is a beautiful image. And tending the fire so it burns bright instead of trying to rub two sticks together to make a spark. Beautiful meditation. Thank you for your words today.
