There Is a Time

 

It feels inappropriate to just post a video, but a friend sent this to me. It’s a poem inspired by Ecclesiastes, and it’s absolutely lovely with a message we all need to hear right now. Please share this with everyone.

    They’ve got themselves another subscriber, because if they’ll do something like that once, they are likely to do it again. Thanks, Drew.

    Sorry. It was sweet, and her voice is nice. But she left out the time for anger at those who did this to us, at frustration because we are apparently powerless to stop people we elected to express and defend our best interests from driving us to ruin.

    Maybe we’ll survive, and rebuild, pulling together as she describes. But it will be hard to forgive them. Or ever trust them again.

    Personally, I’m for going back to the original, as Ricochet’s own @jacksoncrawford did:

    There is so much wisdom here – where was this message before the virus?  It was always there…………

    Make me think of T.S. Eliot:

    “I said to my soul, be still and wait without hope, for hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love, for love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith, but the faith and the love are all in the waiting.
