I see the beauty of life. I see the joys of life. I do not want to die before my appointed time, but if I'm honest her absence coupled with the despair that all of us seem to be experiencing on a daily basis makes for a bittersweet perspective. We have to, despite the circumstances, find a focal point of hope, beauty, and love. We must endeavor to serve one another, care for one another, check on one another. These days won't last always, but it seems that these days will never end. Meditate here: And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love. I Cor 13:13. When you cannot muster the energy to get out of the bed, talk, laugh, just be still and know.
