Next I heard God’s call to me to pray for people and reach out to those needing a listening ear. Every day we can hear God speaking; our challenge is to take a moment to stop our worldly chatter, and listen.
I came home to hear of the death of Gwen Ifill. How to stay in a state of gratitude when it would be so easy to let my sadness slip into inertia?I stopped to listen, and then took a walk to visit my friend Ruth who is in her mid-90s. And now, here I sit at the end of the day, with my computer problems solved, my heart filled with sadness but no self-pity, and a sense of deep gratitude for friends.
