These arrived in my inbox this morning. I had to share.
Lord, I see the strength I build from carrying the cross just as it is. That strength is what makes me strong enough to continue to bear witness and minister in whatever ways I can. I see what some call a tragedy or a hinderance as a blessing. Lord, thank you for showing us that our cross can be seen in such a way where it can be the very thing we need, not the thing to leave. Thank you for this GIFT.
