Lent – Strength

      No Comments on Lent – Strength


Strength is not hard to find.  It is all around us.  It so ubiquitous we often fail to see it even when we see it every day.

Here is just a short list of examples I often take for granted:

  • The trees that stand day and night in all weather.
  • The roads that take the pounding of thousands of cars every day.
  • Mom… standing by Dad during during all those years in which MS slowly and mercilessly took his body.
  • The immigrants who have picked up and left all they knew behind in search of a better life for their families
  • The house in which I live (despite its creaks and moans)
  • The blades of grass which are capable of laying concrete to ruin

And so many others.
