A Mother’s Sorrow

She knelt alone near the back of the church. I could barely see her as she blended with the shadows. She was frail and elderly. Her head bent, her hands folded, she appeared motionless as if she were a figurine. In the stillness, though, her soft sobs could be heard as quiet whispers of sorrow from a broken heart.

I wondered who she grieved for; what heartache has brought her to this moment in time. In this midnight hour, I began to feel her pain; her emptiness. Tears welled within and a sense of loss came over me. It was at that moment that I knew who she wept for…she wept for me, her son.

Again and Again

~ Teach us to number our days…for our days are numbered ~

A prayer, a request, a thought…to consider each day as a gift of time. To each there is a number of days given…to each the number is unknown.

What if this were your last allotted day on this earth? It well could be for no one knows their given number of days. Consider this and make the gift of this day count. And if there be another, then do the same…again and again.
