In my anguish I cried out to the Lord and … He heard my voice.  – Ps 18:7

Reflection.  Scripture tells us that love is patient.  It is so true.  The service of love often takes the form of waiting, which can feel like a slow death at times.  The earth waits for rain, the bud waits for warmth, and the soul waits for a union with God.  Healing is yours for the asking.

Prayer.  Dear Jesus, help me to carry my cross with courage.
