The sun is shining.  God is present in this world, so all will be well in the end.

In the meantime, we trust and work and try to make life  better for ourselves and those around us.  We have hope, in spite of all the signs of calamity.  We believe there is a Master Plan unfolding through the events of everyday life and ordinary people.

So if the headlines make make us joyful or sad, we don’t gloat nor despair.  The pendulum swings, as it has for thousands of years, and the scales always seem to balance after the dust settles and the last sentence has been spoken.

Peace to all.
