Thank you for calling me to be closer to you. I feel so lonely living in a care home without freedom to come and go. The other ladies here are uncommunicative but I want to share your love with them. I miss my ministry as a health care chaplain and I feel useless, or as St. Francis said, “inutil.” Please show me your presence and lead me into a deeper prayer life and acceptance of your will. I see how much I need to grow in poverty of spirit, simplicity, and grace. Teach me gratitude and bless my family. Thank you for all you’ve given me in my life. I love you.
