What is our foundation but in the service of God. We are now one full year into this worldwide pandemic. We have quarantined, kept clear of our friends, and given up Sunday services in church. We are like lost sheep trapped in our own gullies called home. But it needn’t be like this. Are we people of courage? Is living well in community the only way to survive? One year of isolation. One year of feeling alone against this world filled with disease and angry people. We are never truly alone; God is cradling us in His loving arms each and every day. We still have great courage. Courage that is demonstrated by our determination to do what we can in the present moment. In the present moment I ask myself if I can do more than I already am doing. And, if I am called upon to do more, am I willing, am I brave enough, am I strong enough to step up and do what needs to be done. My prayer for the day is that all of us find the courage to do what has to be done, when it has to be done. This is the foundation we must build upon.
