So beautifully put, and Heart warming.

I 'just happened' to turn on the tv a while ago on impulse and saw the news of the tragedy of the Shuttle. I was in Daytona, FL when the first Shuttle explosion occurred. From my place on the shore, I could see the explosion as we(a number of friends) were watching the Shuttle come in for the landing with great expectation. At the explosiion, it was as if we all froze in disbelief.

Today, the memory of this came back. My compassion was for the families here who were waiting so expectantly for their loved ones to land. At times like these, any form (for me) of dis-satisfaction or complaint, no matter how tiny,is seen in its totality: stupid. We are soooooo blessed.

Jesus had told me not to TRY to understand.

My daughter tel'd me this morning and asked how I was. My reply: "totally glad to be alive".

Thanks, J.
