Something to think and pray about this week

When I think of gray I think of gloom, of low clouds and cold and rain. Perhaps we get what we expect, and I need to adjust my expectations. Perhaps the presence of gray can invite us into solitude to reflect, offering time and space for a good book, a life-giving conversation. Perhaps it can open the gateway to a whole spectrum of subtle colors that we never expected to find hiding in the gray.

Everyday life can feel gray for months at a time, especially in the winter season. But what if that drab exterior holds a wealth of unknown possibilities within it? A kind word resonates gently through our day. A time of reflection draws us into deeper reaches of ourselves. A good book opens up vistas invisible in the brighter light.
