“Day by Day”

May 20-21

Acts 17:15, 22-18:1 Jn 16:12-15; Acts 18:1-8; Jn. 16:16-20

I arrived home yesterday around 10:00 a.m. Spent much of afternoon unpacking. David, 22, came by and I spend some time with him.  I had a Pride meeting last night and then came home. Jacob, 18, from Florida stopped by. He had been beaten up by friends, missed school, short on money. I spent an hour with him. We talked about how hard it is to grow up and how different San Francisco is from Florida. He basically needed someone to hang out with for a while. Just a moment of grace.  Today I cooked the meal for tonight and served it.  The Gospel for today is the promise of Jesus holding the hope of of his resurrection.  Some days it is simply day by day. Taking it a day at a time, and it is the hope of Christ that gets you through it. For me he is the only hope. Each year, is one less.  And so Jesus is the hope. Day by day. Deo Gratis! Thanks be to God!
