Hard Times

Hard times take many forms: the loss of a job or other economic hardship; the devastation of a flood or other natural disaster; the horror of violent assault. Just getting out of bed can be an act of great courage at times like these. Whisper a prayer for yourself, or say one for your friend, community, or the world. Hope will find you.
