After reading Sue Bender's book "Everyday Sacred: A Woman's Journey Home" I just couldn't get some of her thoughts off my mind. She talked about mid century monks that took their "begging bowl" out each day into the community and whatever was put into their bowls was their rations for that day. They would go home and put their bowl away and were contended with it's contents rather much or little.I thought about how God provided for the Israelites in the dessert with a daily portion of manna and after mulling these thoughts around for some time, the idea of the Manna Bowl came to me.
The Manna Bowl represents everything that comes into my life on a daily basis. My goal is to be aware of the daily happenings and glean any insights that will help me grow into a more balanced person.
