3 hard eucharisteo

imperfect health, mustard seed faith, transforming feelings

“Everything is eucharisteo. Because eucharisteo is how Jesus, at the Last Supper, showed us to transfigure all things – take the pain that is given, give thanks for it, and transform it into a joy that fulfills all emptiness. This, is the hard eucharisteo. Lean into the ugly and whisper thanks to transfigure it into beauty.” {From One Thousand Gifts, by Ann Voskamp}

(For a more thorough explanation of eucharisteo, you can read this interview with Ann Voskamp.)
