What a month it has been, no? I have been away dealing with health matters and trying to wrap my mind around all that is happening in our nation and world.
… and yet I have hope — hope that defies logic or explanation. Mind you, I have no clear answers, per se, but in the midst of all that is going on in the world, I have found a measure of peace and acceptance that has surprised even me, if I am frank.
Things may seem so very bleak in our country now now (and they are!), but when we pull together and focus on that which unites us — assuming goodwill and showing respect to others at all times — I believe this is where the tide can begin to turn.
After all, as MLK rightly stated, only light can banish the darkness. Therefore, are we willing to be sources of light (and life) and agents of peace in the world today, or must we insist on dividing and promoting dissention and distrust?
The choice is ours to make, dear friends: choose wisely (and biblically). 🧡
