HH prompt: Wish

empty of wishes
at the end of a red day
but full of prayers


About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

  11. God is already there

    Free from pain and woes

    Susan, I heard the harrowing news in church this morning and my mind wnet blank with disbelief and deep sorrow. Sometimes, events take place and we have no words, no understanding, no idea as to how, why it happened. We in Ghana always say Give it all to God. He knows best. But then even at such times, such words become rather lame and a poor comfort to the grieving parents and nation. And so, all I will say is that may the parents and the US be comforted, that the pain with time will subside and even fade, to be replaced by the sweet meories of those wonderful children. May they rest in perfect peace.

  14. Prema says:

    Yes, at the end of the day, when the tragic deed has already taken place, all one can do is pray for their eternal peace.
