Calm in the midst of chaos.  Steadying in the midst of swaying.  Trust in the midst of turmoil.


A remembrance to breathe when anxiety causes one to forget.  A remembrance to give thanks when circumstances make doing so seem like a lofty goal.  A remembrance to allow for awe when conditions cloud one’s vision of the wonder all around.


Emmanuel.  God with us. Presence that surpasses all understanding.


Chosen.  Cherished.  Fearfully and wonderfully made. Beloved.

Peace be with you, this day and in all the days to come.
