Pray without ceasing,
if your prayer is
Kids, my thought in writing this was to be mindful about saying prayers of gratitude often, not just prayers of supplication. Because when life is ordinary and uneventful, we don't realize how absolutely blessed and fortunate we are....until something happens.
As I was ready to post we just received word that my sister's friend's 23 year old son dove off a ledge yesterday into the river and didn't come back up. They didn't find his body till this morning. His mother is in shock, and her everyday world has transformed to what will be a long journey of grief. My heart goes out to her.
Cherish your normal life with awareness. It all can - and often does - change so swiftly.
