On Sunday, July 9, 2017, I was invited by my dear cousin, Mary Sterling, to speak to a large gathering at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in Friendswood, Texas. Mary’s father, The Rt. Rev. William E. Sterling, served as its Rector prior to being elected the sixth Bishop Suffragan of the Diocese of Texas.
After church services members of the congregation joined me for lunch and the breaking of bread. I shared the story of my four-hoofed angel, Old Donk, told in my book, Bending Angels.
Whether it is polio, an illness, the death of a loved one, the loss of a job or a marriage that ends in divorce, God will give us each day what we need to face such passages.
God will provide to all of us our daily bread just as Old Donk received her bread in her daily comings and goings in Emmottville. Tomorrow will take care of itself. Today’s blessings from God will be the spiritual good to feed and sustain our souls on Earth and in heaven.
May God bless this house of worship and all who dwell and pray in it.
