There's bee a lot of good, with people trying to help those less ortunate, keeping neighbours' spirits up.
But there's been a dark side to lockdowns, stay-at-home, and social distancing. I'm sure you've seen it at the grocery, waiting in line for take-out food, and sometimes even in your own home.
And it's up to us to bring back the world we knew.
You can't do it through legislation.
You can't tweet it back to life.
It's only through example, and through love, that care and compassion will return.
To bring back the world you love,
this must be your task;
keep a healing touch through gloves,
and smile beneath your mask.
So many now are stressed and frazzled,
so many lost their certainty,
and in the moment won't be dazzled
by talk of God's eternity.
But ministry, it can go on
through kindly eyes, a wave of hand,
and soon will come another dawn
that you can help bring to the land
sunrise where love again begins,
a daybreak where compassion wins.
Music from Jewel, with Only Kindness Matters.
I do try to answer each comment in a timely fashion, but with Internet providers really stretched, I have only about half of the access I once did. Please bear with me!
