The LORD says, “Even [a woman] may forget [her nursing child], yet I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of my hands.” - Isaiah 49:15-16 (NRSV)
At the neighborhood picnic my younger brother and I tied a rope around my right ankle and his left ankle. Amid giggles we hobbled and swayed to the starting line.
“On your mark, get set, go!” We somehow managed to synchronize our strides and crossed the finish line first. Smiling...
With God, I am never alone, abandoned, or forgotten.

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
