How did you spend the day? I sang a few hymns with a virtual church who didn’t know I was there on the other side, standing with the congregation in my little space near the computer, singing every note. But, most of the day was spent organizing and packing for the unexpected move I’ve been telling you about.
It was in many ways cathartic to see our life represented in our possessions, and to let go of things that no longer represent us or who we want to be. Mostly, though, I feel weary of following the laser pointer to wherever this journey takes us next. I’m guessing many of you feel the same way, even though your life circumstances don’t involve the same struggles. All of us are being tossed around by the winds of global change and are feeling the burden of this chaos. For many, it is a time of grief, anger, disbelief, betrayal, resentment, hardship, and fear.
These are challenging days. May we rise to the best of who we are, and still find hope even when it’s difficult to do so. Seasons change, and spring is upon us. Stay strong, resilient, resourceful, and creative. God bless you and keep you, may His face shine upon you and give you peace. Happy first day of Spring!
