Wednesday of Hope – It Is Time for Healing

I know these are scary, uncertain,  hurtful times, but I really wish  people would stop talking about  what a trash fire the world is.  Our world is a wounded relative,  not a hopeless ruin,  and we’re called to help heal  the injuries we’ve inflicted  on our kin.

Life is a very narrow bridge between two eternities. Be not afraid.
