April 28 – Daily Feast

Our faith is shaken and disappointment sets in when the pain we thought we were rid of comes back. Our bodies and souls have good memories where pain is concerned – and no matter how hopeful we were, our first response is to think we must have been mistaken. We were not wrong, and we would never let a thief come back in to rob again. Fear is the thief and it steals. So we need to claim freedom from fear with the same intensity we claim other things that are rightfully ours.

~ My heart tells me I had just as well talk to the clouds and wind, but I want to say life is sweet, live is strong, man fights to save his life. ~

CAPTAIN JACK – MODOC, Circa 1873
