We have all made decisions that we’ve regretted. We’ve all rushed forward when a bit of hesitation would have resulted in a much better situation. We’ve all made mistakes in a world that is sometimes tolerant and absorbent and other times completely inflexible and unforgiving. Most of us have never made a mistake that cost someone else their life. Most of us have loved someone whose life has been taken. Most of us love someone who has made at least one tragic choice.
We all know people who need greater grace than we can comprehend, people who need to experience that peace that passes understanding. We know someone who needs comfort and courage, strength and stamina. We know someone whose heart is filled with an aching pain that crushes with an unbearable weight. We all know someone who needs to know that we care.
Let us not forget that our prayers touch places our hands cannot reach and that the God Who Loves Us can heal all wounds and soothe every scar.
