Chapter 4, Page 26, Book 20

The earth is what we all have in common

Wendell Berry

April 26th -we’re all in this together

We, though many,form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.

Romans 12: 15

The COVID 19 panceminic reminds us that it doesn’t matter what gender, race, economic status, or political party we belong to No one  is immune from the challenges we have today.  We are all experiencing physical isolation from one another  longing for the good old days of pre pandemoniac life We don’t know what the future holds, and  it somehow allows us to connect with everyone across the globe. And perhaps we can realize that in order for us to feel whole we need to come to terms with the idea that we are only part of the whole and share the greater wholeness with the rest of humanity.

We are one, but we are are all part of the same body. We need to work together to see this through. What’s good for one is good for the other.  We need to work tougher for the common good of all. We all need something to hang on to and that is that we’ll all get through this together.

There are no passengers on the Spaceship Earth. We are all crew.

We are not alone. We're in this together.

The truth of this entry is read each day on the internet. Death and tragic accidents are not prevented by station in life or wealth, just to keep us aware 'WE ARE NOT IN CHARGE, 'HE' IS!" nice visit, hope you are feeling great today and are safe.

"We are only a part of the whole." (That gave me goosebumps.)
Feeling blessed this morning for the luxury of internet access, allowing us to gather -- to encourage and even lean on one another.

PS - Borrowing that Marshall McLuhan quote for my FB. Thanks!

We don't know what the future holds but we know Who holds the future and I trust God throughout, as I know you do, Ma. He will see us through this, no matter how tough the times might be that remain ahead of us :) And that gives me hope!!
