I wrote this three years ago. Rather apropos today…


I find myself questioning without doubting
Not understanding but believing
For what is faith?
The substance of things hoped for
Even when my mind is perplexed
My heart is pierced with truth
The evidence of things not seen but sure
Indications and manifestations to hold me
To keep me on the way
Hope, that thing with feathers
Faith fluttering as a breeze 
Mystifying yet dependable

“…you don’t have to understand things for them to be.” – from A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle.

  1. We miss you a lot but realize you are where you need to be. How time can pass so fast and yet slowly too is such a mystery.

    I found out that my cousins husband died after a short illness. They had been married 52 years and just as you has shared, the loss hurts so much and she misses him so greatly. She, too, is having to move to another home and has much to sort through.

    I would love to talk with you one day when you have time. Thanks again for the Mother’s Day card.

    Love, Judy
