"God is All-in-all" to me
A Friend, dressing to go to a concert, was not satisfied with her simple black dress. I watched while she rummaged in her jewelry box and took out a round silver brooch. Fastening it on the dress, she said, "There, that makes the difference." And it did.
Relatively small additions can make a difference in more crucial situations, too. I reminded my friend of a time when adding two words to a familiar statement had helped bring about a healing.
It happened some years ago when I was having a terrific struggle with loneliness. For the first time in my life I was far from my family and friends. I knew it was a good thing to be on my own at that stage of my career, yet being a stranger wherever I went seemed so hard. I wanted to be independent but not isolated. I needed work but was finding it difficult to think clearly about that, too.
