2.7.21 One of Those

Oh my, but it was a week … one of those that go from bad, to worse. The kind that make you question yourself, and then the world, and then yourself again. An eternal optimist, I must say I was really challenged this week to remain so. Still – I choose.

I choose happy even when it doesn’t make sense. Even when I can’t sleep because my heart is pounding in time to the ticking-ticks of the never slowing down clock of the race I didn’t ask to be in. I choose joy even when I don’t feel it, or see it, or hear it … even when I can’t tell where it has gone, or when, or if it will return. I choose hope because without it – friends: how would we dare to carry on?

So I am asking you to do me two favors.

  1. Pray for someone else. Because my guess is … they need it. Give some space for grace and calling out to the heavens on behalf of someone who may have lost their voice, their faith that tomorrow (for better or for worse) is on its way.
  2. Tell them.

If each person who read this post did that … could you imagine? It might just have the power to turn “one of those” weeks, into a holy revolution!

I’m praying for you,

Elle

  1. Prayer is so powerful and always a good thing to share with all those throughout the whole wide world…
    Joy is such a good choice… not always easy but definitely going in the right direction to get through adversity.
    I pray for joy for you!

  2. Praying for friends has become an intense habit again these last few years. As we drift into our 70s, we find the path rougher and the isolation keener. The need to reach out and comfort has become a more frequent choice.

    Be well and stay safe.
    warm regards, Terry


    Breathe. Repeat.
