IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE

 

"I wish I could relax. ‑Since the accident I have been a nervous wreck. I am having nightmares, and I can still see the dead driver in the car as if it were five minutes ago. The trauma unit at Parkview Hospital was wonderful ..." ‑‑come the words from my niece, Julie. Her daughter, Madison, was in a fatal accident on Coldwater Road in front of Perry Hill Elementry School on Christmas Eve.

A couple times a month Don Graham and I get a call; "We have this nice old sports picture, could you help identify it for us." Our reply; "We will help, but don't expect too much." As usual the picture has nothing written on the backside. This is typical of most people. They just don't write on pictures.

LET US PRAY

 

We four were gathered around the table - Tom and Jane, Lee and Esther - ready to partake of the feast, holding hands, embraced in friendship, love and respect. I asked Lee if he would offer a prayer. We closed our eyes and bowed our heads. Lee began by saying, "I've never done this before." And then he said the most heart-warming words to The Creator, to bless the food and to bless all creation. I'll bet you can even feel Lee's prayer now when you close your eyes and join hands...
