Veterans' Day

We honor all veterans today. This picture seems to have chosen me and I hope it is not too dismal and the sun will soon shine again.
To finish with Sister Miriam Pollard's reflection which I found so rich and keep returning to in my own prayer:

"Yield to the self you are, to the plan of God unfolding slowly but steadily in the heart you feel so discontented with. Make your small plans to fit the capacity he has filled with grace, in which he waits, to which he has devoted an eternity of reverence. Your are not--truly you are not-- a heap of rusty spare parts and scrap metal waiting for recycling. You are his finely -crafted masterpiece."

She ends by telling us that God is an eternal lover who desires to draw us more firmly into his arms.
