Sunday beauty, pain and hope


We went to our local church today.  A blessing.  We suddenly have a growing list of people who have the virus right now.  My friend and his Mother are the worst that I know of; he is on oxygen, the Mother is not improving, even worsening.  

Sometimes all of a sudden things spiral out and one has to remember that God is still here, that in the middle of the storm, as Elizabeth Goudge writes in Gentian Hill, is where the calm is, the fortress.  

May God have mercy on us.
