A THOUGHT THAT MADE A DIFFERENCE

"Someday you'll make sense out of these dark mornings." That was the thought that came to me recently. The sun wasn't even up yet, but there I was, struggling over some editing, trying to figure out how everything was going to come together for the next issue of the Sentinel. It was a fleeting thought, but one that mattered.

This glimmer had nothing to do with turning bleakness into fake, pollyanna-type happiness. (I'm not even sure I can honestly say I'll ever see much of a reason for dark winter mornings!) But something dawned, even as I squinted in the glare of a particularly harsh fluorescent light out in the doughnut shop parking lot. At some point, it has to be clear that even in the dark times, our lives and our persevering do matter, and that out of obscurity can come a way to make sense of things. For me, it was the thought that God has had me in His sight all the while.
