For dear friends who are dear saints

I posted this as my gratitude for yesterday on my Gratitude page.  I have a Gratitude page, did you notice this?  I update it daily, even when I’m not writing elsewhere.  I thought this thought deserved its own post.  Love you C & D!

Gratitude entry for 22 NOV 2013

I am grateful for dear friends who are dear saints

There is a great grace in the gentle and quiet love of abiding friendship, among the communion if saints, amid a rising storm (that exact sentiment being exactly why there is a communion of saints).  There is so much grace in: “We will not try to fix you, to force you, we very much wish to just love you, please just be.”

But that can be a very difficult grace to embrace at times.

I’m getting better at it.

It is those quiet moments of love that Christ’s love is best reflected in us, by us, and through us.

    • Blessings, love, grace, and peace to you too. Every day is it’s iwn very real challenge. I’ve been keeping the dark stuff off here, I’m just not that brave, and I am the only human in the history of humanity who has ever had my name, I have to be careful what I publish.
