The last few days have been emotionally toiling. I have felt like pulling the covers over my head and not emerging until spring. God has given me a couple of nuggets to strengthen me. The first was a phone call with a Fayetteville, NC area code; that could mean just one person---my guardian angel who began as a fresh-faced student in my English class in August of 1988. He encouraged me for about half an hour as I got to work this morning. The second nugget was this:
It is a wonderful read, but the crux of it is that there is hope in the dark. There is always hope in the dark.....That hope is faith. We must have faith in the darkest of times. That is what faith is; if things are going well, we don't need faith.
