A Time for Every Purpose . . .

Nearing the end of our quarantine after being down with COVID, it will be good to return to the time of embracing.

It was a time to receive the support of friends.  
We prefer being the giver, not the receiver.  
But time, nevertheless, dictated another purpose.

Sometimes our purpose is to 
Merely be who we are,
And where we are planted, 
A seedling for our next season.

Purposeful Prayer

My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going.
I do not see the road ahead of me.
I cannot know for certain where it will end.
Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so.  (Thomas Merton)

But I know that I have a purpose
And if I do not yet see---
Clarity is on the horizon,
As sure as there are wildflowers 
Laughing in the wind.
      ------ G. Hill

Often, we look so long at the closed door,
that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.
The only thing worse than being blind,
is having sight but no vision.

I rejoice to live in such a splendidly disturbing time! —– Helen Keller
Today, my purpose is to be.
