Mercy Reigns

Compassion is rising all over the world as we realize our oneness.

Psalm 89:2

I will sing of your mercy forever, LORD, proclaim your faithfulness through all ages.


Do you know how I know that God is merciful and loving?

Because of all the merciful and loving people I have encountered.

It seems like there is always a time or two (or more!) in our lives when we hit rock bottom only to have someone pop up to extend a hand of mercy.

I distinctly remember one time when I was hospitalized with a ruptured appendix and was very sick.

It was the middle of the night and I was not doing well.

I have to admit that I was afraid.

That’s when there was the most kind and compassionate nurse who returned over and over to my room to attend to my needs.

During my 8-and-a-half days in the hospital, that was the only overnight that she was working.

I will never forget that angel of mercy.

During the darkest times, we are most impacted by the light of love.

Times like now as we deal with this Coronavirus pandemic.

I stopped this morning to buy a cup of coffee at a small business that is still open for carry-outs and there I encountered two young men also getting some coffee.

At an appropriate distance, we shared some uplifting comments.

One of the young men said that times like this remind us to be kind to each other.

He said it in such a heart-felt, genuine manner.

How true!

God’s compassion was truly present.

We are all in this together.

God’s love and mercy are constant and forever.

Let us proclaim that in our words and actions.
