I wonder what she’s thinking?

As she nestles her infant child in her arms, is she wondering about the recent UN report concerning climate changes and how we are slowly but surely walking down a narrowing path?

Or, maybe her mind is concerned about troops massing on various borders or Sudanese refugees or Syrian victims or terrorists whose passions erase the value of human life.

Or, perhaps she’s wondering about water for her child to drink or food shortages as the gap between the 1% and the 99% expands. And expands. And expands.

She looks like a kind and caring mother, as do all the ones on television each night weeping about the plight of their families and communities. She reminds me of mothers around the world who must be wondering what the future will hold for their innocent infants.

I wonder. Do you wonder?

    Oh my…she is a sister, wondering if her child will live, wondering how living lost it’s way. wondering if she has the strength to continue? She hears deep down, “I am with you, I will never leave you, or forsake you”. She knows she must believe.

    Yes, I do. Thank you for this. It helps to know that we are in community, and more than we know.
