I prayed “Open the eyes of my heart”
And then I covered them with rosy glasses
Not to diminish the view
But to remain hopeful
In the midst of despair
There is a healing taking place since my divorce. I am stepping out beyond myself again and discovering that sorrow and anger and loneliness across the globe have only grown. Or perhaps technology that I now have helps me become more aware. The poverty of spirit as well as that of shelter, water, health care, and food is overwhelming to see.
I know that when I have been down, injured, frightened and despairing the ones with the rosy glasses are they with contagious enthusiasm and courage awakening my curiosity and stirring my desire to get up and keep trying.

Blessing and Peace to our World In Need. A-men.
