Omnipotent Offerings of Oblation and Ovation



ABC Wednesday is a word meme with participants from around the world. This fabulous meme was created and hosted by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt who hails from Great Britain. Over time, others have joined in to help host this wonderful and informative meme. We are now in our TENTH round! Some of the participants have been with this from the very first round; others have joined in along the way. Each week we are taken across the globe to see the varied and exciting contributions people have taken the time to discover and capture. We start with the letter, "A" and each week we post something in regards to the next letter of the alphabet. This week's letter is, "O"

OFFERINGS


All the offerings here makes me think of gratitude. Unending gratitude. So many offerings here in this vignette and not unlike the ofrenda in the sense of it being a shrine or altar. Although I am not a practitioner of Eastern religion, I do see scenes like this as a reminder to offer gratitude to a power greater than us.

I'm trying to remember the name of the shop that I took this photo in. I believe it is called Wabi Sabi and it is in Taos, NM.

Short post this week (I know you guys are used to the generous serving of the eclectic here), but it's been hectic with the local post-election stuff here this past week with my husband getting sworn in yesterday. You can read the brief explanation at my previous post.

Always fun to come here and see what you have posted.
A heart filled with gratitude is good any way you look at it.
Congratulations to your Hubby too.

quite a collection

you'd get more comments if you turned off your verification. it takes more time, and sometimes, you have to do it over and over.

You are so clever to find such a combination of O words.
Have a great week!

I am confused; am I mistaken or did you grow up in Charleston, lived in Hawai'i and now live in New Mexico? Do I have you confused with someone else??

PS. I missed that shop while in NM but I'll look for it when I visit there again. Thanks!

Objects to make you think of something beyond the here and now. Congratulations to Mark.

I understand keeping the verification on. If folks are too impatient, that's a shame, but I will always take time to comment. Congrats to you hub!

Paula, I'm of the faith view, "in any language, of any path, as long as it's based on love." This picture filled my heart. Thanks so much. Saw you at ABC and said, "I miss that girl!" Amy

You're so right. We do need to remember to be grateful. A timely post for the letter O.
And congratulations to your husband on his election. I hope the pressures of the position aren't too much for him. I can't imagine offering myself as a political candidate, but I admire and appreciate those who do so with unselfish motives, as I'm sure your husband did.
