JustMe

Indeed; and satan will be foiled, as will be that dufus, Hitchens. How anyone could even give him space in print is baffling. He makes it so hard, with this second attack on Mother, for others to pray for his saving.

At any rate, I love that picture you've posted. You know, we all (if we opt to love) go through a dark night of the soul. Sometimes days, sometimes weeks, months, and yes, years. It's no different than what old marriages weather. A lack, a very serious one, is the feeling of there being no one on the other end. I have a friend who has 9 kids, endless grandkids, a growing group of "greats," and she lives with her daughter, and they gather with the family often and go out a lot. But she feels alone, if blessed. She's a widow. She's been a widow for a long time. Her heart still believes in Doug, but her mind knows that it doesn't know anything about him, now. In a manner of speaking, so was Mother Teresa a widow. A widow of Love. She had met her Beloved, but all she had left for 50 years was the love of His love to work with. Indeed, she will be declared a saint because of her emptiness.. which still managed to train many other Sisters, and eased so many, many lives.

:-) I'm glad you wrote of her.
