All shall be well

Today is the fourth anniversary of the beginning of the Iraq war. I'm filled with incredible sadness at the death and destruction that have resulted on bopth sides from what I think is a misguided foreign policy.

I wonder about this world, but I leave it in God's hands. I am reading the writings of Julian of Norwich, who was a Christian mystic born in 1342. One of her phrases is: "All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of things shall be well." It's beyond my human understanding of how that will be in this troubled world, but I have faith that God can make it so. The book I'm reading isdevotional readings that are paraphrases of her writings by David Hazard called I Promise you a Crown.
