Troubles and tragedies can cover over our hope and faith like a shroud. In such times we listen and look for the spark of the Divine that is never extinguished.
A mythical bird said to be reborn from the ashes of its former life, the parallels with Christianity are obvious. Beyond our faith in our post-mortem resurrection, there is also the conviction that we may be "reborn" while in this present life; renewed in our faith, our strength, and our courage through God's grace and Christ's redeeming love.
May the Divine Spirit be the wind beneath your wings! ❤
