I got up angry.I reluctantly joined the zoom church service - angry.I tried. I tried real hard to join in the piped in praise music.

Take 5 - Your Daily Encouragement ... God Most High

What was a distant world problem a few weeks ago, is now on my doorstep. Though I prayed for the people of China, it seemed so far removed.
