Good Days…Bad Days With Maureen Pratt


The Miracle and Mystery of It All

But, here I am, typing this. And here you are, reading this.

Considering all that we’re going through otherwise, it’s quite miraculous, really. And all part of the grand mystery that is Life. Something, despite our frailty, is keeping us going and more – something (Someone, really, that is, God) is moving us beyond our illnesses and pain to the world outside of them. Yes, we’re being moved to act, to interact, and to contribute. We’re being moved to experience and to witness. We’re being moved to blessings we cannot imagine just now.

And we’re being moved to show others what is possible despite our physical challenges.

A friend recently told me, “I don’t know how you do it.”

Want to know a secret? I don’t know how I do it, either. Except that it is by the grace of God and His will that I’m typing this. And you’re reading this.

And, together, we’re participating in the grand miracle – and mystery – that is Life.

And, it is good! :)

Blessings for this Easter Season,

Maureen

Food for Thought: Revisiting Rudolph
I feel a particular affinity for Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, especially the claymation television special. It aired for the first time 50 years ago and has been a favorite for millions since. I even have a Christmas tree ornament depicting Rudolph, red nose all lit up! Rudolph has meant diffe
