Be not afraid

There are scary things happening in this world. Where fear is not real, it appears people are trying to create it. May we walk through these days assuring ourselves and those we meet ‘all will be well’, living in faith not fear.

Be not afraid
Angel words to humans
Fear not
Easier said than done
Let not your hearts be troubled
Divine words
There is so much to make us afraid
So many things that are just wrong and hard
So many broken places, people and hearts – so many sobbing…
My heart, your heart, Boston, Texas, Conn, Oklahoma, Ground Zero, the world, the world, the world…
Your heart, my soul
Your mind, my heart
Be not afraid
Fear not
Let not your hearts be troubled…
May God help us not to give into fear and or despair…
Encourage a friend today…
Encourage yourself
Fear not…

Grieving the loss of innocence on those Boston streets yesterday. Where did kindness and care for one another go?

Off to find it – pray to share it.
