June 5

The last few days have been cool in the morning, but building in warmth through the day.  By late afternoon, thunderstorms roar through and leave the evenings cool.  Most of that weather, I observe through my window as I sit before my computer.  All the tension, violence, and peace of the day happen at a distance.  I pray that I don't live this way with my fellow human beings.  I pray that as they experience beauty or ugliness, kindness or cruelty, I am not distancing myself from them.  I don't want to be a spectator of life; I want to be a loving presence of the living Christ.  I want to be an instrument for God.

Loving Lord, you choose to reach out to us in love.  Help me to be a way to reach out to someone today.  Amen.
