As I sat quietly in the dark chapel, I focused on the light coming through the two stained glass windows in the back. It gave me a sense of calm to see Jesus as He is depicted in these two scenes. My attention then turned toward the tabernacle on the other side of the chapel, but it was difficult to stay in a meditative mindset. My thoughts rambled all over the place.
In the midst of all the strife surrounding us, people are still having normal life issues as well. A former co-worker of mine died suddenly this week. He was a good man. His daughter was in elementary school while I was principal. I can only imagine her grief at this moment.
Another friend of mine just informed me that his 30 year old daughter was diagnosed with cancer. I can remember what my parents went through when I was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 25. These are challenging life events that are still going on all around us in addition to the coronavirus and the civil unrest.
My dear readers, please pray fervently for conversion. Take time to extend love and healing to others. May each of us be an avenue of God's grace!
