Mrs. Flinger will be back online tomorrow, today, we have a moment for Maddie
Heather and Mike Spohr’s daughter Madeline Alice died yesterday, April 7, 2009.
If the sheer power of twitter and internet could heal broken hearts and bring Maddie back, she would be here as strong as Wonder Woman.
The words communion, commune, community all come from the same root. We are members of a community. (Whether we like it or not, sometimes.) If we RE-peat, RE-run or RE-do, we do something again. When we RE-member someone, we are, in a way, being with them again. Even the Big JC talked about it “Do this for the remembrance of me” (BCP, p. 362) Re-Member.
This morning, take a moment with me to remember . . . no matter how much time we had with the people we loved, they were important, they are important. They matter.
And so do we.
The serenity here is that we can all be together in this. Never alone. There is nothing we have to face without the hand of a friendly companion here in the 704.
We all matter here.”
This post is from Room704 where we come together in communion today with each other and our teary faces.
