One day, you’re jetting willy nilly through the grocery store. The next, you’re wearing a mask and gloves, stopping for a temperature check on the way into the store and following directional arrows on the floor while you search for a single roll of toilet paper.
One day, you’re hoping the world is better than it really is. The next, a man is dead on the street and hope seems lost.
One chapter, life is moving sweetly along for your favorite characters du jour. (I hope they are Gabe and Allie! 🙂 ) The next, their story looks like it is ripping apart at the seams.
Life — and the fiction that imitates it — are full of plot twists.
But, God is not. He has one story to tell. It was love. It is love. And, it will always be love.
There may be side plots of judgment and correction. (Has anyone else noticed that we are all suddenly covering our faces and kneeling in the streets? How symbolic is that — regardless of the causes?) There may be spectacular vignettes of mercy embedded in the script, as well. But, the story is love.
May we all be reading. And responding.
