I am going today with calendar wisdom, “That we are alive today is proof positive that God has something for us to do today. (Lindsay) Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. (Heb. 4:16) Very often in Kenya, church services started by the leader sharing, “Many wanted to see today and did not, so let us rejoice.” Those all seem even more poignant as we live today with the pandemic, with politics, and with economic challenges. A student I taught in the 70s in junior high math, now an adult, shared on Face Book that his cousin, a beautiful young woman of 33, so proud of becoming a nurse, was a victim of Covid-19, leaving a four- year old child. I cried. It is a privilege to wake today and face the challenges – and joys. The quotes remind us that we have purpose and we have a God to run to for help. As you face the grief, the shadows, the unknowns of today, may they turn into comfort, joy, peace and grace as we turn to Him. Blessings.
