Climbing the blessings tree

Habakkuk 1:1-4; 2:1-4, Psalm 119:137-144, or Isaiah 1:10-18, Psalm 32:1-8, 2 Thessalonians 1:1-4, 11-12, Luke 19:1-10

In this Sunday’s gospel, a long-ago tax collector reminds me of the days when our youngest child was small, but climbed higher than any of her siblings or their peers dared, frightening the living daylights out of her mother and other adults, leading the way beyond fear with her laughter.

Blessed are you, offspring of Abraham, children of the living God, for today salvation is within your sight.
