Mindful of my imperfections, seeking to know Truth more deeply and to live Love more fully.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?

Right now, in some places in the world, people are struggling with floods.

Also right now, in some other places in this world, people are struggling with drought.

In today’s first reading (1 Kings 17:1-6), the people of Israel are in the beginning of a three year drought.

But even in this time of drought, the Lord cares for his servant, Elijah the prophet.

The care he receives is not exactly world class dining - food delivered by ravens and water from a desert stream – but it is enough.

We all experience periods of emotional, spiritual and other kinds of personal drought at various times.

May we always ask the Lord to sustain us during these times and enable us to persevere with the sufficiency he gives us.
