Sometimes there is a word that keeps coming up and you claim it as your word for the year. Fear comes and you wonder if that is the very thing the enemy will attack the most. Then you look around and know he is already got that covered; has in fact since the whole incident in the garden with Adam and Eve. We see how he works, this separating that creates division inside of us and moves to those we are closest in relationship. It keeps moving and before you know it, we live in a society divided into fearful teams. Nobody is winning. So what do we do? How do we come back together? We start with ourselves.
So much to say about this, more questions than answers actually, but it is time to make dinner and gather around the table. A great picture of unity that will make me smile.
