“Now that my house is burned down I can see the moon more clearly”
From the movie Hiroshima
Tragedies happen. Life can jump up and slap us in the face. One moment things can be fine and the next we discover that a loved one has died or, as in the case of the quote, our house has burned down. Somehow amidst the grief and pain we do eventually find that God is with us and we can see the moon and it is beautiful. God didn’t promise us a perfect life but he did promise to be with us every moment of it.
Prayer: Lord of love, we thank you for staying at our side in the tragedies we experience. Hold us, comfort us, dry our tears and show us how to see the moon.
