Keeping Grounded

Happy Sunday :)

I thought that I'd post this picture again that I took last summer. Of course the sun hasn't changed much since I last shared this picture and that's what grounds me right now. It is timeless.

Last week was a terribly hard week. The news from back home left me not knowing what to say and so I prayed. Over this last week I've heard some people say that prayer does nothing...well I don't believe that. Prayer works in a variety of ways. I know that everyone is different and everyone deals with things in their own way. I totally respect that. Whatever anyone's beliefs are, they are theirs to hold. I am a live and let live person. For me though, prayer helps me hold myself together so that I can go on and look clearly at what is and at what I can contribute. The problems are immense, but we have to work towards better.

When I see this picture that I took of the sun setting over Wiltshire last summer, I see something concrete during these turbulent times. It's the sun that my ancestors saw rise and set every day of their lives and they somehow persevered. So I will too. They went forward and we must something way better.

Sending love and light wherever you are in the world...

Thank you for this. I know that prayer changes things and it's going to take a lot to get to a place of healing in our country.

Yes! Prayer definitely changes things. We are in this together :)
