Embrace those special partnerships in your life that extend love, concern and care.

How are you holding up, gentle listener? This is a challenging time for all of us as the corona virus continues to reach out and affect and disrupt our lives together.

Nothing can separate us from the love of God. Not a virus nor the distance it is creating.

There is joy in the world where one would otherwise presume it ought not to be.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
