thought for the day

To see God’s hand in everything makes life a great adventure.

At my age, I should realize the fragility of life.  However, each time I learn of a friend’s death or serious illness or great tragedy, I am taken aback.  The strength shown by these friends (a spouse who loses a husband or wife, a friend diagnosed with a life threatening illness, or any other of  life’s tragedies) has bouyed me , and those I should be comforting instead give comfort to me.

Seeing these friends as they encounter very serious situations – continuing their journeys with grace and love  and great faith – further establishes the fact that God is here – with us.

God is with us
