In times of stress

My former sister-in-law  once gave me a plaque that said "Certain thoughts are prayers.  There are moments when, whatever the attitude of the body, the soul is on its knees."

Sometimes there's so much pain in the world, it seems that all we can do to help is pray.  And so, for friends and family who find themselves in difficult transitions, for friends who are newly widowed, for others who've recently lost someone near and dear, for those who struggle with illness -- their own or someone else's -- for all the difficulties life can bring, I offer up this symbol, discovered at the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival last weekend.

My heart goes out, my prayers go up, and my thoughts are tuned to you.
