Ponder: We tend to be afraid of death - whether it is the end of a season, or a person. Yet Leonard Cohen famously crooned, "There is a crack in everything. That is how the light gets in." What if death is simply a hole in life - meant to let the light (God) shine in?
Pray: God of all that has been, and all that ever will be, help me to see the holes in my life (and my body) as gateways to You. Amen.
