Turmoil. That is the word that keeps coming to me – rolling in on a notion throughout the day and making me crave order. It feels like the whole world is a chaotic mess. And, my need for organization is driving me to go a little crazy at home. Being gimpy is only adding to my restlessness.
Watching the State of the Union last night, I felt this overwhelming sadness at the division that exists right now along the political front. The parties seem to be growing farther and farther apart instead of working to come together. I am afraid for our country and where that divide will lead if compromise and compassion cannot be found.
I have started spending time each morning in devotion. I have done a daily reading for a while, but have just started praying a Novena each morning thanks to PrayMoreNovenas.com The prayer this morning was for those who have fallen away from the faith. Seems like God is calling out to our whole country, begging us to return to our Christian values and remember the principles that our country was founded on.
