Look for the Helpers

"God will always bring yet more life and wholeness out of seeming chaos and death."
Fr. Richard Rohr, Daily Meditation

I read that and immediately my mind went to how? How does God bring life and wholeness to chaos?  God works in the world how God has always worked in the world--through people.  I remember an old meme of Mr. Rogers, reassuring children after the 9/11 tragedies. "Look for the Helpers," he advised and that has stuck with me.  That's how God works to bring wholeness to chaos--through the Helpers.  God works through the people in our lives to show us love. We may feel the presence of God while in nature, but it is through the arms of another human that we feel God's embrace. God is manifested in so many ways in our lives, but it is through our fellow human beings that God acts, so vividly in our days.  Today, as we go about our April Tuesday, let's be especially aware of God's presence and actions through the love we experience from others.  That smile from a stranger, that young child hugging our knees, that helpful hand offered by a coworker.  All are our God touching our lives in a very personal way.  Love, heidi
