Wishing on a Star Image by EcoSeasons
OFF THE CUFF Writing
I am staring at this dreary, frigid day detecting a stirring in my heart to contemplate…on what? For sure missing the bright warm sunshine…the Creator has set the tone. In reading this and that, the question pops up – when did I first encounter God? That’s easy to answer…He was in my childhood everywhere and in everything I lived through in Europe in the varying cultures edified by history, art and architecture.
As I grew older my inklings changed as I faced evil – the sins of the world – to which I had become an accomplice. Yet I realized a force beyond me was manifesting from my trials. The Star of Bethlehem twinkled above me and I discovered Christ.
Jesus said to the Leper: If you want, I can make you clean.
Can you recall your first encounter with God?
Are you stumbling through darkness?
Jesus never runs away from any of us – no matter the circumstances!
I conclude that on any dreary day, God can be found to give us healing and peace.
May God Bless You!
