About Me—Community Activity

Dear Whisper's Friends,

In developing the art of sharing thoughts in a few words, I would like to challenge you, my friends, to share something about yourself in five words or less. I hope to keep our poetry community living despite my health. (Post Responses below.)

Here is my response--

in light…living love

This exercise is in keeping with the model of Pope Francis’—love without judgment.  In this chaotic world where life is often defined by how much people can get, there are leaders that stand up for truth. We have another couple that we have committed to praying together.  We support each other in challenging times for the four of us.  We have become the four-candle journey.  They have enriched the lives of my husband, Gayle and me.

Wishing all of you the best!  My love goes with you.

Blessings,
Karen

      It is our imperfections we find the humility to grow and reach out to others who are imperfect too. Thank you for your ongoing support.

      This is an interesting thought to think about--maybe in the grey hoping for that light...praying for light...so that we can be in the light.
