I’m not quite sure what to say to you today. Is it ok with you if I don’t say anything? Can I just be aware of your presence? Will that be enough? I picture you out there. It’s comforting, but you’re not as close as I’d like you to be. Can I picture you within me instead? A spark of life deep down inside? Offering answers, hope, love, and comfort. A tiny spark to be sure, but it’s there. Let me just sit with this knowledge for today. That your spark lies within me. I don’t need to go outside of myself searching for it. I don’t need to sift through the rubble of broken hearts, bigotry, violence, and judgment to find you. You abide in me, offering me all that I know is true and right. Maybe what feels like my gut instinct is really you, telling me what you wish and dream for me. I can follow that if I know it’s you.

I love this post today. God is with my daughter in Denver as she waits for a very good friend to come out of surgery for a facial fracture as a result of a hate crime. I have asked God to be with Dan since Sunday when his fave was broken but his wallet was not touched.
God Bless you today and always,
Anita, my heart breaks reading this. Dan is a beloved child of God. Peace be with him and your daughter.
Thank you Sheri, my daughter is nursing him back to health!!
