While God may or may not laugh when men make plans, Covid-19 certainly does.
You don’t hear the expression much anymore, but some of my older relatives when asked if they would attend a family birthday party or wedding would reply, “God willing.”
More than two years into the pandemic, with flights, travel plans, concerts, theatre performances, and family gatherings being cancelled daily, perhaps we should all be saying, “Covid willing.”
This weekend as we celebrate Ramadan, Easter, and Passover
or the warmer days of Spring,
I’m reminded of a traditional Irish blessing…
May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
