2/6/07 Our Heavenly Father, for the comforts and joys of life that we take for granted, we give you our thanks – help us to see beyond the weather – to see instead the concerns of others and to help them cope with their shortcomings. Amen
Once more, I am reminded that what my father had written loses much in today’s reading, only. The tone he would have used for the last sentence would have admonished me to stop thinking of myself, and the things I might think are lacking.
To see beyond, what we think we see or know, or believe takes courage.
Braving the cold weather to walk or shovel takes courage. Braving a dark abyss of tomorrow’s unknowns likewise takes courage.
May I not take the peace and comfort for granted, Lord.
