Photo Prayer 2021-12 — I Could Not Imagine

When my life went to pieces, it was as though my friends formed a circle around me, held hands and prayed. I felt blessed by them and by God. Even so, I was miserable, shattered. I could not imagine all the good coming my way. I could not imagine that the stonemason of my soul was even then picking up the fragments of my life and arranging them into something better than before. Why did I feel so hopeless, so discouraged, when, in fact, so much good was coming my way? Now, at 74, I confess to fearing old age and death. But I can also say that the better part of me eagerly anticipates the impending transition, that all the good coming our way is more than we can imagine.

Since I am relating to this somewhat right now, I personally see “I Could Not Believe” as one of my favorites of yours! The symbolism is spot-on, though I would never have “seen” it if you hadn’t shared it! Thank you, Danny!
