“There’ll be love and laughter…and peace ever after…tomorrow…just you wait and see!” Thankful for those bluebirds over the white cliffs of Dover. My dreams still take me here. Though I’ve been back on Earth for almost a year now, this view of the sacred night from space still captivates me. The lights outline the familiar coast of Europe. A little mist over England, the Strait of Dover, the lights of Paris, seemingly countless cities, small towns, and villages forming a mosaic of lights that shout our presence to the dark cold emptiness of space.
Thankful today for friendship that knows no limits. Thankful for Grace unmerited…hopeful for Peace without boundaries.
