// The sky once seemed to hold such peace. So far above our broken world, so “out there” and mysterious. So promising, as though holding all the possibilities of hope. Hope of a coming deliverance from this war zone.
I can only look around me now, at the dust settling over everything turning it to an archeological dig waiting to happen. “And then there was a great catastrophe and the society was decimated. But you can see how certain elements of their lives were perfectly preserved for us….” //
This doesn't really at all fit my 31 Days theme of reflections based on "Simply Tuesday" but it was what flooded my mind when I was gazing at the peaceful sky last night and was shaken by thoughts of what the people of Aleppo have been experiencing. It is hard to reconcile my peaceful patch of sky with the horrors they are facing. I pray they will find the only peace that can hold them in the midst of this and restore them later, despite the seeming impossibility of such a faith.
