I'm home maid-of-honoring for the weekend and my mother really, really wanted to spend quality time with me today.

Which, you know, was great just because, yay, quality time is so my love language and I love my mom.

But also.

My mother's version of quality time is:
"Sweetie, PLEASE can we go to REI
so I can buy you lots of things for your camping trip?"

I'm not kidding.

My HNGR self really wants to feel guilty about that,
but my everything-else self kinda thinks I won the parent lottery.

I am fully outfitted in Patagonia everything.
(My new Chacos are cute. Like I-want-to-be-buried-in-these-shoes-cute. And everyone knows Chacos are the official HNGR footwear, so clearly my HNGR self can calm down.)

Human Needs Global Resources Covenant, 2009

As fellow travelers on this journey, we commit to this covenant before God. Lord, in Your mercy, hear these our prayers:

When confronted with scarcity, need, and inadequacy, may we be nourished by the Bread of Life and the Cup of Salvation. Abundance overflows from Your table, sustaining all who come in faith. Father, help us.

When monotony blurs our vision and dulls our senses, may we encounter others as Christ did, through intentional presence in daily life, submitting as clay to be formed into vessels filled with the Spirit. Christ, guide us.

When wounded by the fractured condition of Your people, may we be united by Your Lordship in faith, hope, and love; seeing, as through the facets of a diamond, the beautiful spectrum of Your light reflected onto Your holy Church joined in praise. Spirit, empower us.

When all Creation groans, afflicted by injustice and driven to despair, may the promise of redemption root us in the hope of Your Kingdom: "Behold, I am making all things new!"

Holy Trinity, send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve You with gladness and singleness of heart.
